Lili Senman, M.A.

Lili works as Research Coordinator at the Autism Research Centre at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Centre. Lili is currently working on a study that focuses on the accuracy of community general pediatrician diagnosis of developmental concerns compared to a multi-disciplinary team assessment (led by Dr. Melanie Penner). Lili continues on the Learning and Attention and Mental Health Outcomes in Siblings of Children with ASD study (led by Dr. Jessica Brian). She previously coordinated the Genetic Analysis of Autism Spectrum and Associated Neurodevelopmental Disorders study (led by Dr. Evdokia Anagnostou). Before that she was at the Autism Research Unit at SickKids for 10 years under the supervision of Dr. Wendy Roberts, Dr. Jessica Brian and Dr. Steve Scherer. Lili has gained a wealth of experience conducting and supervising psychological and diagnostic assessments with children and adolescents on the autism spectrum at various levels of functioning, as well as interviewing and supporting their parents and families.

Lili completed her graduate studies in developmental and cognitive psychology at York University in 2002, where she studied children’s language and theory-of-mind development. Lili enjoys working with all the families she met over the years and she loves being part of the ARC Team!
