Julia is a fourth year PhD student in School Psychology at the University of Arizona. She has worked in local school districts with children with neurodevelopmental disabilities, their teachers, and their parents to ensure appropriate educational placement and support. Prior to her PhD program, Julia also worked as a teaching assistant and play worker for children with autism. Julia relishes the challenges presented in working with children with neurodevelopmental disabilities; she has found unparalleled fulfillment working together with teachers and parents to provide successful programming. Upon graduation, Julia hopes to work as a school psychologist, with an emphasis on early years and diagnosing autism. She is excited by the possibility to assist in offering specialized support for children, implementing evidence-based academic, behavioral, and social interventions.
