I am an Assistant Professor of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences at UConn and director of the Brain and Language Across the Autism Spectrum (BLAASt off!) Lab. My research examines the behavioral and neural correlates of communication in autistic children and adolescents who are minimally verbal. I use natural language sampling, experimental psycholinguistic methods and functional near-infrared spectroscopy to characterize language use and understanding. My goal is for this research to expand the evidence base to improve communication supports for minimally verbal autistic individuals.
