Dr. Kevin Stoddart is Founding Director of The Redpath Centre and Adjunct Professor, Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto. He has worked in the fields of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), developmental disabilities, and child and adult mental health. For over twenty years, his clinical focus has been children, youth and adults with ASDs (primarily Asperger Syndrome) and the co-morbid social and mental health problems that affect them. 

Dr. Stoddart's research and publications centre on understanding the clinical and psychosocial needs of individuals living with ASDs, developmental disabilities, and their families. He edited the first Canadian multidisciplinary book on Asperger Syndrome--"Children, Youth and Adults with Asperger Syndrome: Integrating Multiple Perspectives" (2005). His second book with Drs. Burke and King entitled "Asperger Syndrome in Adulthood: A Comprehensive Guide for Clinicians" was published by Norton Professional Books (2012). He is active in many research studies exploring topics including the presentation of ASD in adults, aging and adults, marital relationships in families affected by ASDs, services for affected individuals and social inclusion. His third book, in progress with Dr. Fudge-Schormans, discusses the role of the profession of social work in the lives in individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Dr. Stoddart consults to organizations in the areas of program development and evaluation and is involved with practice and policy committees at the local, provincial and national levels with the aim of promoting more effective and responsive service systems for individuals with ASDs. He received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in February 2013, in recognition of his contributions to the field of ASDs.
