Nancy Raitano Lee, PhD, is a clinical child psychologist and associate professor of Psychology at Drexel University who specializes in developmental neuropsychology. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Cornell University and her doctorate in Clinical Child Psychology from the University of Denver. Her research aims to augment knowledge about the causes and correlates of neurodevelopmental disorders through the use of innovative neuropsychological and neuroimaging technologies. While most of Dr. Lee’s research to date has focused on youth with other neurogenetic syndromes, she is currently collaborating with PRISMS professional advisory board member, Ann Smith, on a project in which they are examining the occurrence of autistic traits in youth with SMS and other neurogenetic syndromes. Dr. Lee is enthusiastic about doing more research focused on SMS and is looking forward to contributing to the PRISMS professional advisory board and getting to know the PRISMS community in the coming years.
