Dr. Angela Scarpa receives iTHRIV grant

Dr. Angela Scarpa and the Mount Rogers Community Services Board partner to improve access to autism spectrum disorder services in rural Southwest Virginia. 
Parents and children affected by autism spectrum disorder in rural communities face unique barriers to accessing specialty services, such as diagnostic assessments and case management. The iTHRIV seed grant funding will help a team composed of K.J. Holbrook, a coordinator at the Mount Rogers Community Services Board, and Angela Scarpa, a psychology professor at Virginia Tech, address these challenges.
