My research interests include investigating the effectiveness of interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder. This includes research into preference-enhanced communication systems, treatments for sleep disturbance in children with autism, toilet training, and Functional Behavioural Assessment. I am the Principal Investigator for The Good Nights Programme at the University of Canterbury. This programme of research focuses on investigating the effectiveness of functional behavioural assessment (FBA) informed interventions for sleep problems in children and adolescents with developmental disorders and the secondary benefits of improving sleep on parent and child wellbeing. In 2017, I was awarded a Health Research Council Early Career Researcher Grant ($160,000) and in 2018, I was awarded an Marsden Fast-Start Researcj Grant ($300,000) to support this programme of research.
