I have dedicated my professional energies toward children with cognitive and developmental disabilities. My interests have resulted in research in top-tier medical journals, national and international speaking engagements, and frequent media appearances.

My most important contributions have been made studying how physicians deliver a prenatal and postnatal diagnosis of Down syndrome. My publications in the multi-disciplinary journals, Pediatrics, Obstetrics, and American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, have received national and international media attention, resulting in frequent opportunities to speak at grand rounds presentations around the globe.

My second most important contribution has been in outreach to families who have children with Down syndrome. My two nationally-award winning books were published for the primary audience of mothers, father, brothers, sisters, and other family members. My ongoing research on family attitudes also intends to further clinical understanding of the dynamics of the family life. I further volunteer for several non-profit organizations, including the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress.

My third area of contribution is in the field of memory and aging. My work with the legendary amnesic patient, H.M., has resulted in publications in top-tier neuroscience journals and received the attention of scientists around the country.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
