My specialty is in neurodevelopmental disorders and my primary interest is in autism spectrum disorder. Skills include both assessment and treatment (individual, family, and group) of neurodevelopmental challenges, with an approach to care that is multi-systemic, taking into account the complex network of systems that children live within.


My primary research interest is in health disparities as it relates to autism care, as well as the development of novel interventions that can improve overall health and well-being for children with autism. In terms of study design and methodology, I have interest in comparative effectiveness studies and stakeholder engaged approaches to research.
