PhD candidate, University of Western Ontario

Kaitlyn Parks is a doctoral candidate in Psychology at the University of Western Ontario. While earning her master’s degree, Parks examined how individuals with varying levels of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) learn patterns and how this relates to broader language and social functioning. Her current work focuses on language and reading comprehension in children and adolescents with ADHD and developmental language disorder. Parks hopes her research will help individuals with varying levels of developmental disorders gain access to treatments and services.
