Mental Health News Education, the nonprofit organization that publishes Autism Spectrum News, is proud to announce that Monica Carr, PhD, a Research Fellow at The University of Melbourne, Australia, and a Research Associate at The University of Waikato, New Zealand, has become the newest member of the ASN Editorial Board.
Dr. Carr currently serves as a Consulting Editor for Preventing School Failure, USA, and is a member of the Board of Directors (Academics) at Genesis School for Special Education in Singapore. Monica completed her doctoral training in evidence-based best practice for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. While her thesis addressed the identification of behavioural interventions to support independent functioning, she also drew heavily on her background in mathematics and statistics to explore the technical aspects of calculating strength of treatment effect. Monica’s ongoing research interest lies in identifying and disseminating scientifically backed support strategies and technologies, and she is involved in research collaborations in Australia, New Zealand, Ghana, and the USA.
Monica is an experienced project leader and team player who embraces new technologies and organizational change. She has conducted single-case design research using the KneoWorld platform of serious games in special education classrooms and provided forward-thinking and meaningful interpretations of results to key corporate executives. Monica continues to act as a special advisor while the product continues to evolve and deploy widely across New York, Florida, and select educational markets globally.
Monica frequently publishes in leading international neuropsychological and educational journals. Her work has been named amongst the top 20 most read publications in her field, and several of her papers have been listed on the national database of the Autistic Society in the UK. She regularly presents her research at autism and mathematical conferences around the globe and is an active member of autism societies in the USA, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region.
David Minot, Executive Director of MHNE and Publisher of Autism Spectrum News, stated, “Monica has been publishing articles with Autism Spectrum News since 2015 and brings a wealth of experience in research collaborations, technology integration, and international outreach. I look forward to working with Monica in her new role as we continue on our mission of providing a trusted source of science-based information, education, and advocacy for the autism community.”
