CLAHRC Fellow 2016
Dr Janine Robinson is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist having trained at the Institute of Psychiatry. She has since specialised in the assessment and diagnosis of autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) in adults, commencing her work with Professor Simon Baron-Cohen in 1999 when the national adult diagnostic clinic (CLASS) was first established. In addition Janine has been actively engaged in collaboration with clinical psychologists and psychiatrists in Lyon, France. This work includes translation and validation of psychometric screening measures developed at the Autism Research Centre in Cambridge to be employed in French studies and ultimately in clinical practice. Janine has particular interest and expertise in the impact of ASC within the realm of employment and more importantly, reasonable adjustments which generally enable the individual to function optimally.
