Overview

Aisling Mulvihill is a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Psychology at The University of Queensland. Her research activities span the topics of social cognition and self-regulation from early childhood to adolescence.

Aisling has extensive clinical expertise in supporting children with learning and social-emotional challenges relating to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Developmental Language Disorder (DLD). In 2013, she co-authored the Ant Patrol Children’s Stories, a series of six educational children’s stories that aim to support children’s social and emotional learning. The series has been well-received by educators, allied health professionals and parents.

Aisling’s current research investigates the relationship between language and theory of mind, and the use of self-talk to regulate thinking and behavior in young children. She is also involved in an interdisciplinary science of learning research project investigating the effect of metacognitive training on attention control in young adolescents.
