Allison Schwartz, PhD

Emory Autism Center
Assessment Postdoctoral Fellow
Before coming to the EAC, I worked as a school psychologist in the DeKalb County School District. Previous positions included school psychology positions and internships at a GNETS program and several schools and school systems in Georgia and New York, working at the Marcus Autism Center in the Language and Learning Clinic, and consulting with MetroWest GLRS to provide training to school districts. I have been an Assessment Postdoctoral Fellow at the EAC since January 2018 and support the Child Screening and Assessment Clinic and the evaluation of ASD in children. I also work on a contract with the Department of Public Health to help increase the capacity for early autism diagnosis in the state through community psychologists in the Georgia Autism Assessment Collaborative (GAAC) and the five GAAC Specialty Clinics and a research study looking at remote autism assessment tool, NODA (Naturalistic Observational Diagnostic Assessment).
