1 1  * (% style="font-size: 12px; font-size: 12px" %)**Dr. Connor Kerns**: Dr. Kerns has conducted and published studies on broad array of topics including the role of paternal age in ASD risk, the co-occurrence of childhood psychopathologies, and differential predictors of CBT efficacy for child anxiety. Her present research focuses on the overlap, assessment and treatment of anxiety and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Her ongoing projects aim to explore the varied presentation and phenomenology of anxiety in ASD and the implications of this variation for effective anxiety measurement and treatment. Dr. Kerns is also preparing to extend this work to the understudied area of traumatic events and their sequelae in youth with ASD. Another area of interest is the use of technology to facilitate the dissemination of empirically based treatments. Dr. Kerns is currently working to develop cost-effective, computer-assisted CBTs for youth with ASD and anxiety, interactive social stories to improve skill generalization in ASD, and video-enhanced ASD screening and educational tools. Her long terms goals include developing a parsimonious model of psychiatric co-occurrence to inform the design and dissemination of cross-diagnostic assessments and treatments that will improve child well-being and development.

Boyle and K. Georgiades). She is also the local qualified investigator for a multi-site randomized controlled study of medication targeting core symptoms of ASD (PI: E. Anagnostou). Her clinical and research interests include children and families with ASD and neurodevelopmental disabilities, as well as pathways in child social development and mental health – how children’s social brains and social worlds influence, and are influenced by, their mental health.
