Dr. Kyle Sterrett is a licensed clinical psychologist with a specialization in the assessment and treatment of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). He received his doctoral training at the University of California Los Angeles and received a postdoctoral fellowship at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at the University of California Los Angeles. The focus of this postdoctoral fellowship was on conducting comprehensive autism diagnostic evaluations across the lifespan.

He has extensive experience working with children and families with neurodevelopmental disorders both clinically and in various research programs. He has provided direct intervention and parent training in evidence based naturalistic developmental, behavioral interventions to teach communication and language to infants, toddlers and school-aged children.

His program of research lies in understanding the mechanisms of treatment response for children with ASD enrolled in early interventions. He is also focused on developing novel measures to monitor social communication changes over time and improving the quality of methods we use in early intervention research.
