Child & Adolescent Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowships Autism Spectrum Disorder Fellowship

Autism Spectrum Disorder Fellowship

NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers the 12-month Autism Spectrum Disorder Fellowship in the Autism Spectrum Disorder Service at the Child Study Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.

Our postdoctoral fellowship, offered through the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, is intended for psychologists who have successfully completed an American Psychological Association (APA)–accredited doctoral program and an APA-approved internship, and who wish to refine their skills in assessing and treating autism spectrum disorder, developmental disorders, and other co-occurring disorders.

The clinical director of service is Lauren J. Donnelly, PhD.

Fellowship Training

Postdoctoral fellows perform autism diagnostic evaluations as well as psychiatric evaluations. At the present time, fellows conduct both telehealth and in-person evaluations. Fellows may be trained in the administration of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2). You also master writing comprehensive patient reports and designing treatment plans.

Fellows provide individual therapy, lead social skills groups, and provide training for parents and families of children with autism or other developmental disorders. You gain experience in performing evidence-based treatment specific to autism spectrum disorder and co-morbid psychiatric conditions. These treatments include the Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS), RUBI Parent Training, cognitive behavioral therapy, and exposure and response prevention.

We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and are taking steps to protect the safety of our providers and patients. The experiences of this post-doctoral fellowship are currently available through a combination of in-person and virtual work.
