About

A primary focus of my PhD research is to examine how parents understand autism and their child’s unique autism traits. This research includes the development and validation of an evidence-based tool that is aiming to identify unique profiles of parental understanding of autism with an ultimate goal to inform decisions for intervention strategies that are particular to the needs of the child. My research interests lie in the area of autism spectrum disorders and cognitive development.
