Introduction to the Social Communication Lab

The University of Texas at Dallas’ Callier Center for Communication Disorders

The Social Communication Lab is directed by Dr. Pamela Rollins. The lab focuses on understanding and facilitating social communication in infants and children with ASD. Of particular interest is the co-construction of social communication during intervention with children on the autism spectrum. Social communication moves beyond the ability to utter words and sentences. It refers to using language and other nonverbal skills to “share” attention and information with communicative partners.
