Annie Beatty

Annie is a Research Consultant in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University.

She graduated in 2020 with an Honours BASc in Human Behaviour from McMaster University, where her research focused on child development and executive functioning in preschool children as she began working at the Offord Centre for Child Studies. Annie has worked on the Family Check-Up Canada and STRoNG families teams, where she has contributed to a multitude of studies evaluating the efficacy and feasibility of various parenting programs.

Annie is currently a MA Student in the School and Applied Child Psychology program at Western University, where her research focuses primarily on inclusive education. Her time at the Offord Centre has shaped her research interests in promoting resiliency in educational contexts, while considering a systems approach to evaluate the importance of family, culture and neurodiversity in children’s academic performance.

Annie is thrilled to pursue her passion in working with educators, children and caregivers, while continuing her role with STRoNG families and contributing to the meaningful research being conducted by the team.
