My core interest lies within the psychological development of medically fragile children, particularly those with a cardiac history. Additionally, I have a broad history and passion for working with children with autism spectrum diagnoses as well as other developmental disabilities. While I would ultimately love to find myself in a hospital setting working with these demographics, I am also intrigued by the effect of experiential therapies on these populations and hope to forward peer reviewed research to that end.

A lot of my previous experience has been in an observing and teaching setting. I am excited that this program will give me a lot of opportunities to explore other potential areas and interests to be able to learn from professionals and work with children.

My career interests are working with children with congenital and acquired developmental and behavioral challenges and their families. I am interested in the intervention and treatment of these kids as it relates to improvements in behavior, social interaction, and academic performance. One specific area of interest to me is the impact of neurotypical peer interaction on social and academic development in kids with developmental disabilities.

My main research interest is in the field of early intervention, particularly among children with learning or behavioral disabilities. I am especially interested in working in school settings to help children who are struggling to achieve their academic and social goals.

I am interested in providing intervention and support to young children with developmental delays or disabilities. My research interests include the effect of stigma towards individuals with autism spectrum disorder on their education and treatment. My goal is to improve access to early intervention in environments where these services would otherwise not be available.

My main interests lay in the realm of atypical childhood experience and its effects on higher cortical functions. Specifically, I am interested in manners in which adverse childhood circumstances affect language development and executive functioning. Additionally, I would like to examine early intervention strategies that could remedy for disadvantageous adaptations of atypical/adverse contexts during early upbringing.
