Her work has consistently featured in the most-read publications (Sage Publishing) in her field, and several of her papers have been listed on the national database of the Autistic Society in the UK. She regularly presents her research at autism and mathematical conferences around the globe, and is an active member of autism societies in the USA, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region.
