At the end of her career, she, along with her colleagues, developed testing mechanisms to evaluate and screen preschool children for Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Few tests were available ten years ago, and one-quarter of the children came from bilingual households. Her job was to evaluate students and develop an education plan based on strengths and needs.
