Early Development and Learning Lab

The Early Development and Learning Lab is directed by Dr. Tori Molfese and Dr. Kathy Rudasill. Research conducted in the EDL lab is geared toward understanding individual differences in children’s temperament and self-regulation in home and school contexts as predictors of children’s cognitive, social, and behavioral outcomes in early childhood and beyond. Special emphasis is placed on supportive relationships and processes that are protective for children’s development.
