Theodore M. Hutman, PhD
2010 The Friends of the Semel Institute Fellow
Dr. Hutman received his doctorate in developmental psychology from UCLA in 2007. He received a B.A. and an M.A. in Modern Thought & Literature from Stanford University. His post-doctoral training at the Semel Institute focuses on autism, social emotional and social cognitive development. He is currently overseeing the longitudinal study of infant siblings of children with autism, a primary project of the NIH/NICHD-funded Autism Center of Excellence at the UCLA Center for Autism Research & Treatment. A research fellowship from the Friends of the Semel Institute will support his efforts to integrate behavioral, eye-tracking, and electrophysiological methodologies to characterize autism during infancy and, thereby, to improve efforts to screen infants for autism.
This Fellowship is in memory of Committee member Carole Slavin.
