Ted Hutman, Ph.D.
Dr. Hutman is a developmental psychologist, specializing in autism, social emotional and social cognitive development. He received his bachelor's degree and a master's degree in Modern Thought & Literature from Stanford University. He received his doctorate in developmental psychology from UCLA in 2007. 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. This research integrates behavioral, eye-tracking, electrophysiological, neuro-imaging, and genetic methodologies to characterize autism during infancy and, thereby, to improve efforts to screen infants for autism.
Dr. Hutman's research has been supported by the Friends of the Semel Institute, the UCLA Department of Psychology, the UCLA Graduate Division (Dissertation Year Fellowship), the FPR/UCLA Center for Culture, Brain & Development (Pre-Doctoral Fellowship), the UCLA Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities Research Center (T32 Post-Doctoral Fellowship), and the UCLA Center for Autism Research & Treatment.
