Julie Lounds Taylor’s research program focuses on how individual, family, and societal characteristics interact to promote healthy development, particularly in the face of non-normative family situations. Her current research interests include how families experience the transition to adulthood for young adults with an autism spectrum disorder, as well as the impact of having a sibling with intellectual disabilities.
