Traci joined the PARENTING MATTERS! research team at the CRCF in August 2008, while completing her MSW. Since that time, she has been working on a systematic review of observational studies of parenting children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders (NDD). Traci’s past work experience centred on families with a child diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder or other Neurodevelopmental Disorders, both in private practice and at the West Montreal Readaptation Center. This work experience has shown Traci the challenges families face across their child’s lifespan. Her research and clinical interests include: adjusting to a child’s NDD diagnosis, the quality of life of parents and children with developmental disabilities, parenting, and access to services.
