Rene Jamison

Dr. Rene Jamison is an associate professor and licensed psychologist in pediatrics at the Center for Child Health and Development (CCHD), University of Kansas Medical Center. She works within an interdisciplinary autism center in a variety of capacities, conducting clinical, teaching and research activities, including leadership roles. Her clinical practice includes ASD evaluations and social and behavioral interventions, with a training emphasis on interdisciplinary practice and research. Dr. Jamison holds leadership positions on university-wide research registry and database projects. She is a co-investigator on current and prior NIH awards examining sensory motor and brain mechanisms in autism and evaluating ASD diagnostic procedures. Dr. Jamison is the principal investigator on current and previous research and service grants examining the social-emotional health of girls with ASD. Dr. Jamison’s primary area of research focuses on females with autism, identifying key factors that contribute to social competence across development and interventions to improve social-emotional health. In 2008, she developed a social skills and self-care program, Girls Night Out (GNO), specifically designed to address the unique needs of females with ASD, which was the impetus for her research on this understudied population. Dr. Jamison disseminates this work through peer-reviewed publications and presentations at national and international conferences
