Student Capstones and Thesis Work

It was genuinely difficult to keep up with the staggering volume of galleries, exhibitions, original research and video presentations New Paltz students published at the end of the 2019-20 academic year. We'd like to take time this summer to spotlight individual projects and give this exceptional scholarship and creative work its due.


Today we're returning to the 2020 Student Research Symposium, sponsored by the Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities program. 

by Ryne Perry '20 (Communication Disorders), Dana Brown ’20 (Communication Disorders) and Michelle Brobbey ’20 (Communication Disorders)
A look at how the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) helps to facilitate language development for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) when compared to other interventions (e.g., sign language or verbal intervention).
