Lanier Rossignol is a certified family nurse practitioner. She received her graduate training as a Family Nurse Practitioner and her Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Virginia. She also has a Bachelor of Arts in Neurobiochemistry and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Virginia. After her two sons were diagnosed with autism, she sought information from a number of sources including researchers, specialists, the medical literature, and she attended 6-8 autism medical conferences per year to help find answers for her sons. As biomedically-based treatments helped her sons begin speaking, she became more involved in research in autism. After years of focusing on both her sons and her own medical issues, she has now joined her husband, Dr. Rossignol, and his medical practice as a Nurse Practitioner to help families struggling with the underlying medical issues of autism.
