Shana Attar receives NRSA grant award from NIHM
Shana Attar, a graduate student working with Wendy Stone, recently received a NRSA grant award from NIMH. The award title is: Developing a Framework to Advance Cultural Sensitivity and Accommodate Behavioral Variability in Toddler Autism Screening: A Mixed-Methods Cross-Cultural Approach to Improve Autism Screening Accuracy. Her project is designed to characterize culture-specific early symptomatic expressions of autism and use this information to increase family and provider knowledge and practices regarding early autism detection. Her ultimate objective is to advance timely and equitable early autism detection in racial and ethnic minority settings.
