Join us to hear Associate Professor Kristelle Hudry share her program of research on childhood autism, early intervention and the experiences of children, parents and families.

Dr Kristelle Hudry is Associate Professor of Developmental Psychology with La Trobe University’s Department of Psychology and Counselling where she leads the Childhood Autism Phenotype Team (CAPTeam), supervises student research and teaches psychological research methods and topics on child development. Her research interests are in early childhood development (from birth to school entry), including but not limited to conditions like autism. Here, her focus is on developmental learning processes, including the emergence of early signs, the diagnostic process, and how core signs of autism and associated skills might be modified through experience, such as intervention.

Kristelle completed her PhD at the University of Queensland, and then spent five years abroad in the United Kingdom, where she held post-doctoral positions at the University College London Institute of Child Health (2006-2008) and Institute of Education (2009-2010). Kristelle returned to Australia in 2010 to join La Trobe University on a continuing Teaching and Research appointment. She has maintained collaboration with the UK-based Preschool Autism communication Trial (PACT) and British Autism Study of Infant Siblings (BASIS) teams, and extended this collaboration nationally to achieve the recently-completed Australian Infant Communication and Engagement Study (AICES), a multi-site randomised controlled trial of pre-emptive intervention for infants showing early signs of autism funded locally by La Trobe University’s UDRFA and the AutismCRC.
