Dr. Gleason is a pediatrician and child psychiatrist ("triple boarder"). Working with Dr. Boris, she is the co-clinical director of a state-wide early childhood mental health program (ECSS). Her clinical work includes evaluation and treatment of high-risk infants, young children and their families through Louisiana’s Early Childhood Supports and Services program. She is interested in early identification of high-risk young children in the community to optimize early intervention efforts. To this end, she has developed and validated a screening tool specifically for primary care physicians. She also has academic interests in primary and secondary prevention in early childhood maltreatment, parent-child relationships, and biological stress responses in early childhood.
