Biography

Professional Background

Over the last 15 years of training and practice Dr. Laprime has developed a breadth and depth of knowledge around the analysis of systems that support individuals with autism who experience severe behavior and mental health needs. Through an intensive training program that involves public health (bachelor’s levels) and applied behavior analysis (doctoral level), her scope of knowledge and understanding of data allows her to bridge the gap in care for those patients that repeatedly utilize emergency or hospital-based interventions due to lack of community-based services.

Through her work and expertise in this arena she have become a leader regionally in the optimization of care for populations with developmental disabilities, and those relying on emergency services for safety. She is the director of the Applied Behavior Analysis Integrated Care Team for the University of Rochester Medical Center and has implemented several programs to improve communication between providers, increase access to behavioral health supports, and further integrate and system-level supports through my leadership on a similar state grant in Connecticut.
