She serves as a scientific advisor to multiple patient groups: Australian Disorders of the Corpus Callosum (AusDoCC), National Organization for Disorders of the Corpus Callosum (NODCC), Corpal, and the Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery Alliance. She is co-author of “ACC and Me” and “Emme and Me.”
Dr. Paul maintains a clinical psychology practice (L.K.Paul and Associates) in Pasadena, where she sees adult outpatient clients and conducts neuropsychological assessments on individuals with callosal agenesis.
