Title: The Peruvian Connection: Developmental Disabilities in Kansas and Peru

Abstract: Volunteering at a school for children with different abilities in Lima, Peru, caused Ryan to become interested in working with individuals with developmental disabilities. Incidentally, this school in Peru has strong ties to the University of Kansas, and these connections allowed him to be a part of specialized research projects both in Kansas and Peru. His research integrates biological and behavioral sciences and focuses on autism spectrum disorders and self-injurious behaviors.
