Research Summary

My research focuses on developing interventions that improve teaching practices and learning outcomes for K-12 students who have high incidence disabilities. My current work investigates the effects of using the Self-Regulated Strategy Development framework (a strategic approach for developing written expression skills and self-regulation of the writing process) for constructing arguments within a multi-tiered system of instructional supports in language arts, math, and science classrooms.
