Dr Razvana Stanciu is a child psychiatrist, a researcher and a PhD candidate in child psychiatry at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). After she completed her medical studies at the ULB, she became mainly a hospital practitioner in child and adolescent psychiatry, but she also acquired a background in child neurology and adult psychiatry, and a training in systemic therapy. Her clinical interest led her to focus on autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). After being in charge for two years of a diagnostic centre for ASDs, she contributed to the creation of a day care facility for young children with ASDs. Her research work focuses on sensory aspects in ASDs and is mainly located at the Queen Fabiola Children Hospital in Brussels, Belgium.
