A Focus on Person-Centered Autism Research, Evaluation, & Support Services
Led by Center Director Dr. Ty Vernon and Clinical Director Dr. Anna Krasno, the center focuses on the development and implementation of strength-based, motivational support services, interventions, and psychological evaluations for individuals with autism and their families.
The center provides diagnostic assessments, support services, parent support, and clinical training opportunities through its funded research projects and clinics.
Intervention support models developed at the center include the Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) and the Social Tools And Rules for Teens (START) programs.
We provide research and clinical training to doctoral students in clinical psychology and special education, many of whom have continued on to become highly influential members of the autism research and clinical support communities.
