Cleo Burke is a registered psychologist, with a masters degree in educational and developmental psychology. She has experience working with families, children and adults with developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and rare genetic conditions, with her dissertation focusing on parents’ experiences of raising twins with developmental disabilities, including varying levels of ASD.
