Honorary Research Associate

M.Psych (Clinical), PhD

Dr Kandice Varcin is a Research Fellow who currently holds a conjoint appointment with CliniKids, Telethon Kids Institute and Menzies Health Institute, Griffith University.

Her research spans experimental research, clinical trials and policy-relevant applied research in the field of autism. Her work predominantly focuses on supporting young children and their families. She is particularly interested in the evaluation and translation of evidence-based therapies and supports for autistic children and their families. Her research aims to bridge the research-to-practice gap, so that children and families can more readily access supports that they want and that are likely to benefit them.

Dr Varcin has specialist training and expertise in developmental and diagnostic assessments for very young children. Dr Varcin was involved in the development of Australia’s first National Practice Guideline for supporting autistic children and their families.
