Dr. Wendy Machalicek co-directs Pearl Duck Autism Center, a collaboration between the University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disability’s (UCEDD) Early Autism Research and Learning for the Young Child (EARLY) program and Pearl Duck Center. Her scholarship is focused on developing effective behavior analytic assessment practices and interventions addressing the behavioral and educational needs of young children (18 months – 8 years of age) with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. She is particularly interested in the assessment and treatment of challenging behavior and in evaluating ways to improve the acquisition, generalization, and sustained use of evidence-based practices by caregivers, teachers, and schools.
