The overarching goal of my research and clinical focus is improving the implementation of assessment and treatment practices related to severely challenging behavior. To this end, I have two major concentrations. The first and primary concentration is improving assessment and treatment methodologies for severely challenging behavior in applied settings. The second concentration is addressing organizational issues related to the implementation of assessment and treatment for severely challenging behavior.
I have extensive experience assessing and treating behaviors in applied settings that include group homes, family homes, day programs, schools, treatment centers and juvenile detention centers. Within these settings, I have assessed and treated challenging behaviors of children (ages 3-18) with and without diagnoses, as well as adults (ages 18-70+) with developmental disabilities and/or mental illness.
