Dr Sarah White

Dr White has recently been conducting research that attempts to draw out the benefits of the social difficulties in autism aswell as the talents and strengths associated with Autism. Dr White is an autism researcher at UCL's Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, studying cognitive abnormalities through behavioural and neuroimaging techniques. The ultimate aim is to understand autism better in order that evidence-based interventions can be developed that are targeted at the source and make a real difference.
