Dr. Hamad has extensive experience working with a broad range of issues affecting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. He is particularly noted for his work in applied behavior analysis and with technological approaches to helping children with autism. For his work in autism early intervention training, Dr. Hamad, along with his UMass Medical School colleague Richard Fleming, won the 2008 Sloan C award for the 'Most Outstanding Online Teaching and Learning Program' in the nation.
