Dr. Theodore Tomeny’s research and clinical interests are in intellectual and developmental disabilities, particularly autism spectrum disorder (ASD). His research explores the functioning of families of individuals with ASD. Dr. Tomeny is also interested in better understanding factors related to quality of life for those with ASD, long-term outcomes for adults with ASD and their families, and the unique challenges faced by low resource families, particularly those living in rural, under served areas. Dr. Tomeny and his lab also work closely with The University of Alabama Autism Spectrum Disorders Clinic and the UA ASD College Transition and Support Program (UA-ACTS).
