    Autism Spectrum & Language Disorders Lab

    The Autism Spectrum & Language Disorders Lab is part of the School of Communication Sciences & Disorders at Western. We investigate neural, perceptual, and cognitive contributions to language ability and disability in children, and conduct practice-based research in collaboration with clinicians to improve outcomes for young children with speech and language disorders.

    Our lab is directed by Dr. Janis Oram Cardy, an associate professor and speech-language pathologist at Western. The lab also includes graduate students from the MSc/PhD programs in Health and Rehabilitation Science (Speech & Language Science) and Neuroscience and the MClSc program in Speech-Language Pathology, and undergraduate students in psychology, health sciences, and medical sciences.
