Dr. Talge investigates the perinatal pathways that contribute to risk for neurodevelopmental disorders, with a focus on identifying biological or socio-demographic factors that explain heterogeneity in these associations. The goal of these efforts is to help tailor developmental surveillance efforts and identify at-risk subgroups of children who could benefit from increased access to early interventions. Dr. Talge also serves as a Member-at-Large (2017-2021) for the Society for Pediatric and Perinatal Epidemiologic Research.
