Kristin Rispoli’s research primarily focuses on intervention to address social and emotional functioning in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as well as techniques to foster family-school partnerships in treatment and education for children and adolescents with ASD. Her recent work includes developing a parent-mediated emotion regulation intervention for preschool-age children with ASD and examining the parent-educator dynamic on school-based teams for adolescents with this disorder. Other work addresses early education and intervention for developmentally at-risk children and their families. Ongoing projects target increasing community-based screening for developmental risk factors in young children and adaptation of emotion-focused intervention for children with ASD in schools.
