CLAS Math-Neuroscience-Education grant

The influence of mental health and socio-economic disparities on children with learning disabilities – a math intervention study (CLAS, 12 months)

Fabiana Cardetti with neuroscientist Professor Fumiko Hoeft (Psych) have been awarded a CLAS grant to work collaboratively in this interdisciplinary research study. The funds help provide a summer educational opportunity in reading and math for children with disabilities and financial hardship. The investigation will focus on the impact of variations in psycho-social factors, as well as mental health and math achievement changes over time. Beyond the theoretical and clinical significance of the research, this project expands our engagement with the community by applying our scholarship to positively impact the welfare of Connecticut.
