Molly Easly
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.

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.
