Research Interests

My research interests are related to improving access to and quality of services for adolescents and adults on the autism spectrum. Specifically, I am interested in how autistic men and women use occupation to create, gain entry to, and maintain membership in communities. As a research assistant I have worked on continuing research projects seeking to understand the unique needs and challenges of families of young adults on the autism spectrum.
