Lisa Heidi Shulman, MD, is Interim Director of the Rose F. Kennedy Children’s Evaluation & Rehabilitation Center and the Division of Child Development at Montefiore. She is Professor of Pediatrics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Since joining the Montefiore team, her clinical focus has been on the early identification and long-term management of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD),as well as improving access to care for underserved populations, identification and management of early motor delays and toe walking gait.

In 1983, Dr. Shulman received a Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics/Psychology at Brown University.

Dr. Shulman is involved in numerous projects involving ASD, including one that began in 2019 that aims to identify the causes of ASD by carrying out genetic testing, phenotyping, and demographic profiles on the parents of children with ASD. Her work has been shared nationally at presentations and lectures and has been published in a number of peer-reviewed journals, books, review articles and abstracts. She is a featured contributor for Einstein’s blog, the Doctor’s Tablet (http://blogs.einstein.yu.edu/welcome-to-the-doctors-tablet/) and has produced popular videos demonstrating baby milestones (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZSjm0drIGM).
