Stefanie Bodison, OTD, OTR/L is an occupational therapist specializing in sensory integration, Neuro-Developmental Treatment™, and feeding and oral-motor interventions for children. She is currently completing an NIH-funded Ruth L. Kirschstein T32 Postdoctoral Training Program entitled Training in Rehabilitation Efficacy and Effectiveness Trials, which is administered through the USC Divisions of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy, and Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy (1T32 HD64578-01A1). Her research interests are on the study of neural mechanisms underlying sensorimotor integration in both typically developing children and those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and the development of a screening tool to identify developmental dyspraxia in children. The primary aim of this KL2 award is to accelerate Dr. Bodison's development as an independent scholar conducting multidirectional translational research evaluating the efficacy, effectiveness and implementation of rehabilitation interventions for children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
