Association at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where he saw the health
impacts of restrictive lung disease in patients who were paralyzed. It
continued in his research in behavioral neonatal neurology in Philadelphia and
later in Vermont, where he developed techniques for the assessment and
