My current research efforts are in the field of children’s mental health and family support for parents raising children and young people with disabilities. I have a particular interest in the ways in which employed parents of children with disabilities manage work and family responsibilities, including through use of community supports.  Recent work includes the examination of supports needed by employed immigrant parents raising children with special health care needs.
