Congratulations to doctoral candidate, Emily Laubscher! This past weekend at the annual ASHA convention, Emily was awarded the Student Research Grant in Early Childhood Language Development from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation (ASHFoundation)!
Emily’s project, “Effect of a Parent Training on Vocabulary Use for Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder,” will examine the effect of a parent training in the implementation of an AAC app that supports responsive Just-in-Time (JIT) programming on the number of vocabulary concepts used by children with ASD.
We can’t wait to see the outcomes of this important work. Congratulations, Emily!
