Associate Professor Jay Buzhardt visit

Dr Jay Buzhardt is an Associate Research Professor at the Juniper Gardens Children’s Project at the University of Kansas (United States). His collaborative research program focuses on investigating factors that impact the implementation, usability and effectiveness of technology-supported evidence-based practices, assessment, and training. His work in this area targets parents, teachers, and service providers who struggle to provide or access evidence-based practices for children with disabilities due to limited training, geographic remoteness, or lack of local expertise.

Dr Buzhardt will be discussing different aspects of his research work in the area of technology supported evidence based practice in early childhood settings, at two presentations hosted by the Judith Lumley Centre and the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre.
