Nicole White ’22

Dr. Nicole White’22 (GSLC, PhD)  has received a grant from the University of Cincinnati’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science & Training (CCTST) to focus on Integration of Specialized Populations. Her study will focus on the development of community engagement between caregivers and daycare providers to foster the development of inclusive practices so children with disabilities can become more likely to be accepted into daycare centers and summer camp programs. She will be working in alliance with the Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services Community navigator team to collect information on caregiver and daycare provider perspectives, then develop a set of educational resources and templates that can be used to foster communication and engagement. Dr. White recently published her dissertation entitled, “Caregivers and Healthcare Providers on Resources, Gaps in Care, and the Value of Down Syndrome Centers.”
