Daniel Rosa

Daniel is a Nationally Certified School Psychologist with his Educational Specialist Degree (Ed.S.) in School Psychology from Rider University. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology at Rutgers. Daniel has a passion for empowering neurodiverse individuals through counseling and self-advocacy. His research interests lie in understanding the brain-body disconnect of those on the Autism Spectrum and the complexities of communication differences.

Dan is exploring new ways to study siblings’ interactions in autism. He is also interested in the development of new methods to support and facilitate communication in non-speaking autistics. Dan’s experience as a counselor and clinical psychologist will be very valuable to create new tools that accommodate autistics with sensory motor needs and lead them to a path of greater bodily autonomy and brain predictive control. His work will help us unravel new ways to engage the public in a new narrative about autism, one that embraces the individual as an active member of our society and enhances social agency for all.
