Catherine Hoyt

Instructor, Occupational Therapy

Dr. Hoyt leads the Growth and Occupational Well-being of Youth (GROWTH) Laboratory, which examines early indicators of developmental delay and intervention outcomes in infants and toddlers at high risk for neurodevelopmental delay, particularly those with neurological injury from sickle cell disease (SCD) or perinatal stroke (a common cause of cerebral palsy). The laboratory focuses on applying family-centered approaches to research through caregiver participation at all stages. Projects may include quantitative and/or qualitative approaches. Dr. Hoyt is invested in the application of an equity lens within the field of occupational therapy. The GROWTH Laboratory strives to promote and apply an equity lens in all processes and outcomes.
