Elizabeth Denluck is the Clinic Coordinator for the UCLA PEERS® Clinic. She manages all aspects of the PEERS® for Young Adults social skills intervention groups, and serves as a behavioral coach for this group. Elizabeth graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and a minor in Anthropology. She then found her passion for working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disorders when she spent two years as a behavioral interventionist. In that role, she helped children and adolescents work on their social skills and individualized education plans in a school-based environment. Elizabeth's interest in research stems from her goal to contribute to the understanding of developmental disorders in order to help individuals receive early detection and more effective treatment outcomes. Her research interests include early assessment and intervention for children with autism spectrum disorder, mood and anxiety disorders, and how sociocultural context impacts children’s mental outcomes.
