She has also given workshops to families and paraprofessionals on a wide range of topics in the field of autism and early intervention. She is currently involved in research on video modeling and group social skills instruction.
Daiz is a certified provider of the UCLA PEERS® program to teach social skills to teens with autism, as well as completed advanced training in the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM).
