ABOUT ME

I am currently an Associate Professor with the IUB School Psychology program, and the Director of the Social Skills Research Clinic (SSRC). The SSRC provides an opportunity for 3rd and 4th year school psychology students to gain experience conducting diagnostic evaluations, implementing social skills programming for children, and conducting applied research for children with ASD.

I am also the author of the book Building Social Relationships which was recognized as the Literary Work of the Year by the Autism Society of America. The 2nd edition of Building Social Relationships was published in 2016. I have had the great fortune to speak nationally on the topic of social emotional functioning for children with ASD.

I am currently a licensed psychologist and a health service provider in psychology (HSPP). I have worked in a variety of settings, including schools, psychiatric hospitals, university clinics, and private practices. I teach courses on applied behavior analysis and consultation (fall), single case experimental design (spring), and social skills training (summer) in addition to supervising first year and advanced practicum.

I am currently conducting research on professional development outcomes for school personnel, social skill interventions, and video self-modeling for children and adolescents with ASD.

Graduate students play a critical role in the development and implementation of my research, and have served as co-authors on a vast majority of my research publications.
