Community Based Pediatrician

Department of Pediatrics

Faculty of Medicine

Dr. Anamaria Richardson is a community-based pediatrician who has been welcomed by the autism community — she specialize in severe autism, especially those with intellectual impairment and self injury. Previously, she worked in complex care and in biochemical diseases — this has resulted in her interest in medical complexity as well. Her background includes being a teacher, so she understands the challenges experienced by kids navigating both systems — health and education. Recently she has also become a qualified specialist to do autism assessments. Her current interests and research is around advancing health outcomes and advocating for increased collaboration to support families and kids with severe autism. Finally, she also works within many Indigenous communities — both rural and urban — and is currently working on a project to create an Indigenous focused healthy living web based portal.
