Dr. Jessica Kramer
Dr. Kramer’s interests center around the involvement of children with disabilities in research and intervention planning, the development of theory-based assessments and interventions, and disability rights and culture. As Co-PI on this project, she is particularly interested in documenting the extent to which adolescents with autism spectrum disorders are preparing for successful transition to adulthood. Her concurrent research project is using a participatory approach to develop a training to teach youth with disabilities how to systematically evaluate environmental barriers and supports, identify needed supports, and request environmental modifications and reasonable accommodations to facilitate participation. She is co-author of two pediatric assessments based on the model of human occupation, and has contributed to the development of other assessments for children and adults with disabilities.
