Welcome to the Jaswal Lab at the University of Virginia!


We study the cognitive and social processes underlying communication to better understand and support individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. We want our work to be relevant and useful to the community, and believe that this is best accomplished when the people affected by the research collaborate in it. We envision a world where all individuals are welcomed, included, supported, and valued.

To learn more about our current interests and our other lines of research with typically developing children, visit our About page and Research page.

We are part of the Developmental Area in the Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia.
