Dr. Kramer and small business collaborator Ablelink Smart Living Technologies, received continued support from NIH to build a clinically robust PEDI-PRO Assessment Software to address the market gap in patient reported outcome measures accessible to youth with intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD) (R42HD090772).

Dr. Jessica Kramer and her collaborators also received two COVID-19 related Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards. The first project will apply a framework developed at the Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence to analyze mental health service needs of people with IDD and their families pre- and post-during COVID-19 collected by the Center for START Services (CSS) network (EA-15364). The second project, in partnership with Temple University, will prepare research teams to engage with individuals with IDD during public health emergencies and disasters (EAIN-00109).
