  • Biography

Caitlyn B. Gumaer is joining the Psychological Science Department as an Assistant Visiting Professor of Psychology and the Interim Director of the Claremont Autism Center. Caitlyn’s primary interests meet at the intersection of research and clinical treatment; she is interested in positive, strength-based approaches in treating children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and working with their families to promote sustained, positive developmental outcomes. Her research interests include naturalistic teaching strategies, language and communication development, and the inclusion of family members (i.e., parents, grandparents, siblings) in the treatment of children and adolescents with ASD. Having worked at the Claremont Autism Center for the past 10 years, as both an undergrad (Pitzer ’13) and graduate student (CGU ’20), Caitlyn is looking forward to being a member of the CMC community.
