About the speaker

Melissa Armstrong-Brine, PhD is a clinical pediatric neuropsychologist who specializes in the identification and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders. Melissa did her clinical training at Saint Louis University before completing her internship at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. She finished her training at the University of Missouri, Columbia Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorder with a two-year clinical fellowship. After remaining at the University of Missouri for several years as faculty, she moved to Cleveland, Ohio in 2014 to direct the Metrohealth Medical Center’s Autism Assessment Clinic. Melissa has a strong interest in diversity aspects of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) with a particular interest in assuring culturally sensitive autism diagnostic evaluations and treatment services are available for families in the Greater Cleveland area. She believes all individuals with ASD and their families should have access to data-driven, inter-disciplinary diagnostic evaluation, and treatment with providers who embrace diversity and seek to expand the availability of culturally-appropriate testing instruments. Together with her colleagues, she has built one of only a few clinics in Ohio that provide ASD diagnostic evaluations for individuals through the lifespan and one of only a few clinics in the United States offering interdisciplinary ASD evaluations with a team of Spanish-speaking provider.
