assignmentAccepting New Patients


My clinical interests include: assessing children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, consultation with school staff, family and parent training, behavioral intervention strategies, and literacy development and improvement.


My research interests include investigating the relationship between autism spectrum disorder and other comorbid conditions. Specifically, I am interested in improving treatment and intervention practices for children with autism who also experience such conditions as ADHD, anxiety, and/or learning disabilities.
