GRIFFIN DOYLE, PH.D.

Griffin Doyle, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist with over 43 years of experience practicing psychoanalytic and developmentally-based psychotherapy with children and adults in private practice. Dr. Doyle has over 30 years of experience assessing and treating infants, toddlers and pre-school children “at-risk-for” or diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). He primarily works in a parent-mediated, developmentally-oriented treatment model popularly known as DIR/Floortime©. This is a multi-dimensional framework that weaves together cognitive, social-emotional, relational, and innate constitutional factors as they interact uniquely in each child. Dr. Doyle has worked and collaborated with a variety of specialists and reviewed studies aiming to capture the earliest signs and effective treatments for the youngest portion of the ASD population. He consistently lectures, trains and consults on “red flags”, subtle diagnostic cases, and the variability of symptom formation during early development (0-5 years). Dr. Doyle has found being face-to-face with each unique child and his/her caregiver provides a critical, compelling means to witness the child’s interests, communication style and capacity to engage. He coordinates ASD intervention with a team of occupational therapists, speech therapists, educators and pediatricians for the best possible outcomes. He often serves not only as a team members, but also as a case manager coordinating care to construct, execute and refine treatment strategies.

Dr. Doyle has served as a core faculty member of various post-graduate training organizations. He is a co-founder, senior faculty, and training coordinator for the Profectum Foundation Training Programs. In this capacity, he teaches, mentors, and designs curriculum for a range of domestic and international professionals wishing to become proficient in practicing a comprehensive, relationship-based approach with pre-school up through college age ASD individuals. Further, Dr. Doyle has advised widely at various public, private, and special educational settings, treatment centers, and a long-term research project promoting and studying development of ASD children. He testifies as an expert witness throughout Washington, DC and West Virginia regarding legal matters regarding treatment, custody, and divorce visitation with HFA children.
