Ides of August Album Two  

 Olofson and his students’ other project is utilizing parents’ knowledge of their children to help us understand how and when young children develop social skills.

“All the data up till now has not tapped into what parents know about their child’s social skills,” Olofson said. He and his collaborators wanted to develop a questionnaire for parents that would get at that parental knowledge. And they wanted to find the questions whose answers would correlate with the child’s social development as based on a set of tasks researchers gave the children.

Presenting results of the study, Olofson believes they've done exactly that. 

"We seem to have developed a questionnaire that we can give to parents and teachers to help them understand the social skills of that particular child."
