The Autism and Developmental Disabilities Lab (ADDL) is a research laboratory at Simon Fraser Univeristy in the Department of Psychology. Under the direction of Dr. Grace Iarocci, we conduct research on Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, Intellectual Disabilities, and other developmental disabilities.

The research at ADDL has been funded by the Canadian Tri-Councils (SSHRCCIHR, & NSERC), the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, the Human Early Partnership, and the Laurel Foundation.
