My research focuses on how to best support families with young children with or at-risk for autism. In addition, I work to determine how to best help professionals learn to work with young children.

I work with children and their families, specializing in concerns with development and behavior. I assess to determine if a diagnosis, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, is appropriate. I also provide evidence-based intervention for very young children with or at-risk for autism and their families, directing our Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) program.
