Dr. Wainwright has been involved with the Autism and Language Disorders Nosology Project for several years. This project represents a large scale collaboration of investigators from many disciplines, all of whom work with children affected by language disorders and/or autism.

Currently Dr. Wainwright is evaluating aspects of problem solving and social interaction in language disordered and autistic children at ages seven and nine.
