Nicky Palmer

Nicky Palmer received her B.A (with honors) degree in Psychosocial Studies from the University of East London in the United Kingdom in 1996. She went on to secure a position as an Assistant Program Coordinator at the National Autistic Society in London, which enabled her to focus on ASD early on in her career. During her time at the NAS, Nicky examined the effects autism had on individuals and their families. She focused on developmental treatments to understand this complicated disorder, which has enabled her to support families to grow. Within the last ten years she has worked in California as a family consultant to provide treatment options and direct support to them. Nicky has also supported families in crisis, trained staff and provided professional consultation at various social service agencies. She has been employed at UCLA and FACT, supporting people to enhance their social emotional development.
