PsyD Student Receives Grant for Dissertation Research

The Department of Clinical Psychology is pleased to announce that fourth-year student Allyssa Lanza received a grant through the Disability Determination Process small grant program for what will be her dissertation research.

The goal of the grant commission is to promote new research on how to better understand and improve how social security disability funds are allocated. Her dissertation, temporarily titled The WISC-IV and children and adolescents with intellectual disability: Evaluating for floor effects in the US version, will assess whether floor effects found in United Kingdom versions of Wechsler intellectual tests are also present in the United States version of the WISC. If floor effects are found, this study may influence how intellectual testing is used in the United States for determining eligibility for Social Security disability services.
