Current Research

Dr. Friedman's past scientific papers and edited books address a wide range of topics including (a) the effects of preterm birth on cognitive, educational and social development of children; (b) the interface of brain, cognition and education; (c) the development of planning skills; (d) longitudinal follow-up research strategies; (e) environmental influences on psychological development; and (f) child care and children’s psychological and health development. Dr. Friedman’s current research on distance communication between deployed parents and their military connected children and families is informed by two conferences she organized in 2011 and 2012 and by her extensive past research.  She is working primarily with Dr. Sigelman on publications based on a recent study they conducted. Dr. Friedman has authored well over 100 publications.
