About Research and Grants

At MSC, research is conducted to seek and disseminate knowledge in child development, autism, family science, early childhood education, and professional development practices. MSC’s research team utilizes a variety of methodologies to implement innovative studies with diverse populations. Through the focus of our research department, we continue to be at the vanguard of educational research and practice, and are able to provide research opportunities for students across a variety of disciplines. Findings from these studies inform our internal practices as well as those of professionals in the fields of autism, child development, and early childhood education. Our research has been presented at conferences at the state, regional and national levels and published in peer-reviewed journals.

Community Outreach

In support of the missions of Nova Southeastern University and the Mailman Segal Center, the center has at its core community outreach via research, grants, and professional development activities. Our focus is on enhancing the quality of the early care and education system, supporting families and parenting practices for high-need families, enhancing the awareness and capacity to serve families with children with special needs, and participating on local and national committees and task forces.
