The Research Team

Dr Jeremy Parr

  • Consultant Paediatrician and Clinical Senior Lecturer

I am a consultant paediatrician in Newcastle, and lead the ASD-UK project. I see children and young people with ASD in clinics, and make diagnoses and help to answer parents' and local professionals' questions about children. I work closely with ASD researchers from the UK and other countries, and am involved in a number of studies. These include researching the causes of ASD, the effectiveness of ASD interventions, and how health services for children with ASD and their families should be provided.
