Audrey Meyer Carson graduated from Northwestern University’s School of Education and Social Policy in 2007 with a B.S. in human development and psychological services.
Audrey completed her master’s thesis, which utilized electroencephalograms (EEG) to examine neural connectivity in response to familiar and unfamiliar people in children with autism spectrum disorders, in March 2010. Her doctoral qualifying exam explored the effects of social isolation on the neural development of teenagers with autism. She is currently working on completing her dissertation, which explores differences in EEG coherence, or connectivity, between teens with ASD and typically developing teens.
Additionally, Audrey has worked in the Marquette Autism Clinic providing comprehensive autism assessments for all ages and led groups of teens with ASD in the Program for the Enrichment and Education of Relational Skills (PEERS).
Currently, Audrey is completing internship at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, Texas, working as the pediatric neuropsychology/clinical child intern. She enjoys playing with her puppies and traveling with her husband.
