Spectrumly Speaking Podcast: Transition Programs for Women with Autism
In this episode, hosts Katherine Cody, Psy.D. and Becca Lory, CAS, BCCS speak with Elizabeth Roberts, PsyD. She is a psychologist and neuropsychologist. Since 2017, she has been the national director of clinical services for College Internship Program (CIP).
Prior to that she practiced clinical neuropsychology for over two decades, most recently at the NYU Child Study Center, where she was an assistant professor at the NYU School of Medicine. She specialized in the diagnosis and evaluation of individuals across the lifespan with autism spectrum disorder and other types of neurodiversity.
Liz has lectured and written on many topics including executive functioning, employment, relationship and intimacy, co-occurring conditions, classroom learning, co-morbid disorders, psychotherapy, college, young adulthood, and at-risk babies. She has a special interest in ASD in girls and women.
The three discuss CIP’s methods, the value of transition programs, and what people can do that don’t have those programs available to them.
