Kristina Blaiser, Ph.D, CC-SLP was awarded $290,000 from the Oberkotter foundation to examine outcomes of children who are Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing across the state of Idaho. In collaboration with the Idaho Educational Services for the Deaf and Blind, Dr. Blaiser and her co-PI, Dr. Gabe Bargen, are leading the Idaho Collaborative Assessment Project. The goals of the study are to evaluate the communicative outcomes and family support of families across the state of Idaho and to develop a model for data visualization for easy translation of these outcomes. Drs. Blaiser and Bargen plan to use these outcomes for in-person and online training and professional development opportunities for providers and families across the state. Dr. Blaiser is an Associate Professor in the department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the Speech-Language Pathology program.
