Bio

Biography

Lauren Kenworthy, PhD, Director of the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders, evaluates and treats children and teens with the full range of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Her research includes a partnership with the Ivy Mount School in Rockville, MD, where she and her colleagues are developing learning strategies for students and teachers in order to help children with ASD develop flexibility in social and school settings. This approach, combined with the advanced imaging work being done at Children's National Health System, is pointing to an innovative way of addressing repetitive or "stuck" behaviors that are common in children and teens with ASD.
