Dr. Reddy’s most current book, “Empirically-Based Play Interventions for Children,” is a collaboration with fellow FDU professor Charles Schaefer.
Her research has captured the attention of many authorities in the field and Dr.Reddy has received study grants form the State of New Jersey, the American Psychological Association and the University. Last year, the New Jersey Psychological Association honored her with the Emerging Researcher Award for her scientific contributions to psychology.
In the School of Psychology, Dr. Reddy has taught and developed six new graduate level courses and is consistently ranked among the finest teachers.
