Welcome to the Research in Education and Development (READ) Lab

With an emphasis on social relationships and cultural contexts, our research focuses on developmental strengths and risks as they relate to well-being and success in school and beyond.  We use a variety of research methods including on-line surveys, in-depth interviews, questionnaires, and behaviour observations.  Our central goal is to contribute to understanding how schools and families can best support the positive development of children and adolescents with both typical and diverse histories, talents, and needs.
