She specializes in medical treatment of autism spectrum disorders and ADHD, having completed training through the Autism Research Institute (formerly known as DAN!) and theMedical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs. Her area of interest extends to sensory processing disorders, learning disabilities, Down’s Syndrome, and cerebral palsy.
