Philosophy of Care

My goal is to help children maximize their potential in all aspects of their life. To do this, I focus on leveraging a child's strengths and helping families feel empowered to advocate and support their child at home and at school. In order to help develop more effective therapies for children with autism, my research is focused on understanding early brain development as it relates to language.
