My research is focused on the development, evaluation, and dissemination of evidence-based assessments and intervention practices for children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental or learning disabilities. A major interest is knowledge translation and strategies to both translate research into community practice, and to reduce the use of ineffective or harmful practices. I am also interested in informing understanding of deviance and delay observed in developmental disabilities in terms of social cognitive development and academic achievement such as literacy and how this may inform the development of interventions in the future. Finally, I am interested in how best to support families, schools, and professionals to inform multi-tiered interventions with the ultimate aim of improving the lives of people living with a developmental disability.
