Research Profile

My research is both basic and applied. I seek to simultaneously understand and to improve the everyday lives of young people with neurodevelopmental learning, attention, and autism disorders as they transition to adult roles and contexts.

I conduct application-oriented research (i.e., use-inspired basic research; Stokes, 1997) with an overarching objective of understanding the interrelationships among an individual’s knowledge, diverse abilities and skills, and environmental supports in impacting performance and, ultimately, outcome paths. My applied work uses this understanding to develop and test supports and interventions for fostering the self-management and social functioning (i.e., everyday life functioning) of young people with developmental neuropsychological conditions.
