Sondra M Stegenga

University of Utah
Assistant Professor of Special Education
Salt Lake City, UT
I have over 20 years experience in the fields of health and education working with individuals across the lifespan. I have provided services and supports to children and families as a home visitor, occupational therapist, early intervention program administrator, and state council member across a range of environments including early intervention, schools, and hospitals. I have been involved with local, state, and collegiate councils, workgroups, and advisory boards to improve practices for young children with disabilities. My research focus areas include interdisciplinary and interagency collaboration, research to practice - implementation science and policy in family based systems, and early social emotional assessment and intervention related to school readiness and long-term outcomes. I look forward to connecting and collaborating at the upcoming conference! :)
