Heather will be leading a team of researchers from the University of Washington, University of Puget Sound, and Texas Woman’s University investigating the impact of partial-body weight support technology within an enriched play environment on the mobility, exploration, and mastery motivation of young children with Down Syndrome. The study begins in the Fall of 2021.
