Prof. Stefanie Blain-Moraes was awarded for her project “Moving-with Autism: a participatory mixed method study of attunement across neurodiversity”, and Prof. Aliki Thomas for her project “Professionals as scholars: competency indicators and outcomes of advanced training.” The purpose of these development grants is to provide seed funding to support faculty members as they work to enhance the development of future proposals for external funding.
