Gabriela CastroResearch Intern
Gabriela is a recent 2019 graduate from the College of The Holy Cross, where she majored in Psychology and minored in Education. During her four years at Holy Cross, Gabriela was very involved in volunteer work in the Worcester community, as both a volunteer and program director of several free health clinics located all over the city. Over the summers Gabriela has also become very interested in working with individuals who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, more specifically with the child population. In her most recent summer, she worked as a certified behavioral technician for Boston Behavioral Learning Center. During her time at BBLC, Gabriela worked one-on-one with individuals ranging from 2-13 in both a center-based and a home-based ABA therapy practice. Gabriela’s goals include wanting to attend graduate school in the hopes of attaining her Ph.D. in clinical psychology, so that she may hopefully work as Neuro Clinical Psychologist who specializes in ASD.
As a research intern for ICCD, Gabriela hopes to further gain insight as well as research experience in the neuro-psych field, specifically surrounding Autism Spectrum Disorder.
