READiLab research assistants Karla Uroza and Gina Damilano recently had a wonderful visit with Sanchia Fernandes, a talented research assistant from the Michigan State University site of the RISE study. This study brings researchers together from across the country to investigate the use of Reciprocal Imitation Teaching (RIT) within Part C Early Intervention systems. RIT is a play-based approach that provides parent coaching strategies designed to improve children’s social communication.
“Meeting with Sanchia in person was such a joy! We instantly connected and were able to deepen our bond beyond our virtual collaboration. I hope we can visit her and other researchers on the project in the future.”
