Congratulations to Our Newest Ph.D. Grad, Diondra Straiton!

Diondra’s research area is in Clinical Science and her dissertation examined the active ingredients of group consultation to improve the implementation of a parent coaching intervention for Medicaid-enrolled autistic children.

Diondra is currently completing her predoctoral internship at the University of Pennsylvania on the Child/Development Disabilities track. She is working with the Penn Medicine Autism Clinic, in the PATCH Anxiety Clinic, and has two rotations in the Philadelphia public school district. Once she completes her internship, Diondra will be heading to the University of Pennsylvania to be a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow where she will be working on research projects about methods to improve training for clinicians in Philadelphia’s early intervention system.

Congratulations Diondra, the MSU Autism Lab is so proud of you!!
