Deborah Fein

Dr. Deborah Fein, a clinical neuropsychologist, has spent over 35 years studying autism at the University of Connecticut and at Boston University School of Medicine. She is a Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Connecticut and Professor of Pediatrics in the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. This research has led to numerous published articles and chapters, a co-authored book, an autism screening tool, and support from grants. Her research focuses on early detection, language, social interaction, memory, hormone levels, and attention. Children that had autism that now has been resolved is another focus for Dr. Fein. She is conducting NIH-funded research that focuses on early detection, neuropsychological and psychiatric functioning, and brain structure of those who no longer have autism.
