Madison Fecher (she/her) works at the Center for Autism Research (CAR) as a clinical research coordinator looking at early social and motor development in autism. She mainly works on a longitudinal study that looks at interactional synchrony between infants and their caregivers, as well as the impact that learning to walk has on infant's language development. In addition, she coordinates the expansion of the infant-caregiver synchrony task to the Infant Brain Imaging Study (IBIS) network. Before her time at CAR, Fecher graduated from The Ohio State University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience with a double minor in Clinical Psychology and Disability Studies. During her time here, she studied early social communication and intervention in autism with Dr. Katherine Walton.
Fecher ascribes her enthusiasm for clinical research to this experience, as well as to her time at Nationwide Children's Hospital. With Dr. Kristen Hoskinson, she analyzed socioemotional and neurocognitive outcomes of several pediatric conditions using various neuropsychological assessments and imaging techniques. Fecher plans to pursue a PhD in Clinical Psychology to continue engaging in inclusive, neurodiverse clinical and research work.
