Functional behavioral assessment
Methods and materials for teaching students with behavioral disorders
Research / Creative Activity Interests:
My research activities primarily focus on the academic status of students with behavioral disorders, the wraparound approach for children and families who are at-risk of school failure, and behavioral assessment scales used for students with behavioral disorders. In addition to my research, I serve as a behavioral consultant to a number of schools in the Omaha Metro area.
Current research focuses on alternatives to functional behavioral assessment and the use of technology for instructing students with high incidence disabilities.
