Project Title: Treatment mechanism and outcome measures in social and communication intervention trials for autism spectrum disorder: addressing current challenges

Sophie is an MRC funded PhD student working on PACT-G, a large randomised controlled trial of a social communication intervention for children with autism spectrum disorders. Her current research interests focus on the outcome measures used in behavioural intervention trials across the autism field and the underlying treatment mechanisms. In particular, she is focusing on the recently developed Brief Observation of Social and Communication Change (BOSCC), a play-based observational assessment of autism symptoms involving a child interacting with a researcher, parent or teacher.
