Research Summary

The majority of my research focuses on disseminating best practice autism spectrum disorder (ASD) assessment and treatment approaches to low-income countries and underrepresented groups in the US. I am interested in identifying mechanisms that contribute to ASD service disparities. To this end, I am engaged in a range of projects assessing: 1) Global discrepancies in ASD knowledge and stigma 2) Sociocultural variability in ASD symptom presentation, such as attentional allocation patterns 3) Barriers to accessing early intervention and early childhood special education
