Abstract

Over the past year we have been working on a multi year study funded by INBRE-NH with adolescents who present with autism. The study focuses on the understanding of neuropsychological functioning while using an Ipad application as an intervention to improve language and speech prosody. Each of us has attended weekly lab meetings and has made unique contributions to the study. As a team we will discuss each of our own experiences participating in undergraduate research, and how it has affected our views of college as well as our future career choices. Specific topics covered include the process of being involved with new ideas about human behavior, the detailed nature of research, the professionalization of a psychology student, and the course of action from undergraduate education to graduate school application and career development.
