Meeting on Monday, March 29, 2021
6:30 – 8:30 PM

Please join us as Dr. Caitlin Allen, Ph.D., presents:
Executive Function and ASD
What is executive function and what does it mean when someone has an executive function deficit? How do executive functions apply to people with ASD? What can be done to help individuals with executive function problems? We will discuss all this and more.
Dr. Caitlin Allen, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and Associate Professor of Pediatrics in Developmental Pediatrics at the University of Kentucky/University of Kentucky Healthcare. She specializes in the assessment of neurodevelopmental disorders and has worked with individuals diagnosed on the autism spectrum for over 30 years in many different capacities, including teaching preschool, as a behavior technician, and ABA supervisor. She also works with women in recovery from substance use disorders and their children at Beyond Birth Comprehensive Recovery Center through UK Psychiatry teaching parenting skills. She is the mother of two ostensibly neurotypical children, ages 12 and 21, and is married to Kip Guy, Dean of the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy. She also lives with two standard poodles and a French bulldog granddog (who belongs to the 12-year-old).
