Currently, at the Hussman Institute for Autism, Orsati is developing research and supports around behavior and communication for individuals with autism. One of the research projects she is leading involves training parents, caregivers and teachers to understand functions for behaviors and support those behaviors accordingly. She is also part of another research project that will coach parents in ways to provide alternative means of communication for individuals with autism who have complex communication needs.
