Research Interests:

Dr. Holditch-Davis has extensive experience using observational methods with infants, young children and their families to measure parent-child interactions and infant sleep. Her research focuses on parenting premature infants, predicting the risk for later developmental disabilities in high-risk infants, and the effects of complications of prematurity on infant sleep-wake states. She has been a principal investigator on 4 R01s and a co-investigator on several others. Her research interests include sleep, especially in preterm infants, older infants, and children; interactions between parents and young children, longitudinal design; observational methods; behavioral development of high-risk infants; neurodevelopmental assessment; premature infant behavior, development, and parenting; pain in infants and children; and infertility and adoption.
