Remembering Dr. Tristram Smith
Tristram Smith, PhD,
whose research on behavioral interventions changed the landscape of care for children with ASD, passed away on the morning of August 6, 2018, at the age of 57.
"For autism families, he was a hero," said Alison Singer, president of the Autism Science Foundation. "His research was groundbreaking, but he also pushed for increased access to autism services and lobbied for legislative changes. It's unusual to see scientists also act as advocates, but Tris went far beyond what most clinician-researchers do."
