About the speakers
Joanne is a Research Fellow at Aston University. Joanne completed her PhD at the University of Nottingham where she led a small-scale randomised controlled trial of a self-help intervention for parents of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Following this, Joanne worked as a post-doctoral researcher on the development of a clinical assessment tool for concerning behaviour in autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and a feasibility and pilot trial of a novel parent intervention for emotional and behavioural problems in children with ASD. Joanne has also worked as a frontline advisor for the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Research Design Service. Currently, Joanne is working on research projects aimed at improving the identification and treatment of mental health problems in individuals with ASD and intellectual disability, and is exploring research interests in the familial correlates of anxiety in individuals with ASD.
