Research Interests

My research focusses on children with disabilities and their families. Several projects evaluate approaches to intervention for children, and develop appropriate outcome measures. I am also concerned to understand what underpins behaviours: for example, how parent-child interaction can develop communication skills; and neuropsychological processes linked to repetitive behaviours and anxiety in ASD. (see Autism research
