Research: Dr. Rogers specializes in conducting research into autism and other developmental disorders and treating patients with developmental disabilities, especially young children with autism and their families. Dr. Rogers studies early social, cognitive, and emotional development, development of motor skills, communication, imitation, and language in children with severe disabilities, development of social relationships in people with disabilities, and treatment efficacy in autism at the UC Davis M.I.N.D. Institute. Her clinical interests include early diagnosis and intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders, and evaluation of cognitive, behavioral, social, emotional, and adaptive functioning in children with other developmental disorders. She has written extensively in her field, authoring numerous articles and books and developing training videos on child development. Dr. Rogers serves on the editorial board of many publications, including the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, and Infants and Young Children. She also reviews various periodicals such as the American Journal of Mental Retardation, Journal of Early Intervention, Journal of Child Psychology and Child Psychiatry Child Development, and Development and Psychopathology
