The UW Psychology Department’s Annual Research Festival took place today, and two of our READi Lab clinical psychology students received awards. Lizzy Karp and Sarah Edmunds both received summer scholarship awards. Lizzy will be using her funding to examine parents’ stress and emotion regulation, and their experiences of intervention research, as part of our ImPACT study. Sarah will be using her funding to study whether the ImPACT intervention affects vocal and language development in toddlers at risk for ASD by increasing their parents’ responsiveness to specific vocal sounds. Sarah also received a service award for her work on the Department’s Diversity Steering Committee. Way to go Lizzy and Sarah!
