Sonja Saqui

As a practicum student at Compass Clinic I work under the supervision of Dr. Jodi Yager and conduct developmental assessments for young children suspected of having Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am currently a Ph.D. student in School and Applied Child Psychology at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Prior to graduate school I completed a certificate in Educating Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have worked in schools and private- and university-based clinics to support children and families by providing psychoeducational assessments, consultation and therapy. I strongly believe in working alongside families and strive to establish a high degree of continual care and rapport when providing psychological services. I have a strong interest in working with and supporting individuals with neurodevelopmental differences including Intellectual Disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am also currently gaining specialized experience at UBC exploring the overlap of mental health and Autism Spectrum Disorder with a particular focus on anxiety and trauma. I have facilitated workshops for teachers and students about how to manage symptoms of anxiety in the classroom. My research at UBC has centred on school-based interventions for struggling learners and the implementation of meaningful and accessible school-based mental health interventions for children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
