Professor Amanda Richdale Professor, Autism Research Centre

I am a founding staff member at the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre (OTARC). I completed my PhD at LaTrobe University after which I joined the Dept of Psychology & Intellectual Disability Studies at RMIT University. I remained at RMIT until returning to La Trobe University in 2009 to take up a research position at OTARC. My research interests include autism spectrum disorder, disorders of development, and sleep and mental health. I am currently project leader for the longitudinal Study of Australian School Leavers with Autism (SASLA) and I work closely with the Australian Longitudinal study of Autistic Adults (ALSAA) at UNSW; both studies are funded by the Autism CRC. Currently, I am a committee member of the APS Interest Group Psychology of Intellectual Disability and Autism and a registered psychologist (Educational & Developmental) and Fellow of the APS College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists.
