Research Summary

My primary research interests include evidence-based practices in assessment, positive behavior supports and reading instruction for diverse elementary students at-risk for and with disabilities. I am also interested in the interaction between behavior and literacy. I teach courses and consult on educational assessment, assessment for students with disabilities, and effective methods for literacy instruction and behavior supports in special education and multi-tiered systems of support.
