Research Summary

My research interests are concerned with the well-being of children, teens and adults with neuro-developmental conditions and  their family members. My primary research focus is on family experiences/ interactions and how they relate to children’s mental health and well-being (with an emphasis on sibling-hood experiences and relationships). Other research interests include evidence-based educational and psychological interventions in autism across the lifespan, health psychology and sleep, anxiety and sleep in autism and sexuality/sex education for young people with an intellectual disability.
