Dr. Ana Hanlon-Dearman’s research focuses on understanding the intersection of neurodevelopmental variation and population health. Her research has focused on fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), sleep disorders in neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

A selection of her key publications in FASD include recent population health publications describing the health, social, education, and justice outcomes of children with FASD, a number of papers describing social and systemic risk factors contributing to FASD, and of importance to pediatricians and health care providers, anticipatory guidance for those caring for children and youth with FASD.
