Research Interests:

Driven by a human rights perspective and theoretically supported by ecological and transactional models, I am particularly interested in (1) documenting the quality of child care and education settings attended by Portuguese toddlers and preschoolers; (2) describing the quality of child care and education experiences available to Portuguese children with disabilities; (3) identifying the dimensions of quality susceptible to significantly and positively influence the social outcomes of both typically developing children and children with disabilities. Regarding children’s social outcomes, I am focusing on social participation, aiming to determine the social processes that encompass this construct (and thus, studying dimensions of social competence, social acceptance, and friendship). My research interests also include quality practices in early intervention and early childhood special education services available to young children with disabilities.
