Roula Choueiri | Professional History

Dr. Choueiri’s focus of clinical work is the Early Identification and care of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) both in academic and community settings. She has developed the Rapid Interactive screening Test in Autism in Toddlers (RITA-T) that is validated for ages 18 months-36 months (Website) and has developed its online training and workshops. She has been working with early childhood providers across MA, and the US, to study its integration in different clinical models to improve access and early diagnosis of ASD especially to those in underserved areas and from diverse cultural background. In addition, she is collaborating with researchers from other countries to further validate the RITA-T in other languages and cultures. Dr. Choueiri is involved in project A.N.C.HO.R (Autism. Network. Culture. Healthy Outcomes. Resilience) to develop a training tool kit for early childhood providers on principles of family navigation. She was a previous ambassador of Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Act Early Campaign to MA (2016-2018) and continues to be actively involved in the MA Act Early State Team as a member of its steering committee since 2013.
