Background and Interests
My primary interests, which emerge from my experience with practitioners and families in the field, converge around early childhood special education and autism. My research projects have focused primarily on the parent-child relationship as a medium for promoting developmentally situated social communication competency at the preverbal level for toddlers with autism.
Teaching and Program Coordination
I coordinate the Special Education Doctoral Program and a fully online upper graduate level graduate certificate, Preparing Educators of Students with Autism (PESA).
