Research Interests: Acquistion of Academic Subject Matter for Individuals with Disabilities and Typically Developing Students; Translational Research on the Application of the Principles of Stimulus Equivalence to Teaching Academically Relevant Concepts
My interest is in effective and efficient methods of instruction. I conduct research with both college students and children. With college students I conduct translational research that examines acquisition of academic concepts (e.g., neuroanatomy, statistics). This research is informed by basic research on stimulus equivalence. I also conduct applied research with children. In one study I am developing guidelines for conducting a functional analysis of reading interventions for children diagnosed with ADHD. I also collaborate with Dr. Emily Jones on research evaluating treatment methods for children with disabilities and their families.
