Expertise

My current work is centered on early childhood education. My research focuses on the developmental outcomes of children with and without disabilities, including family, school and other contextual influences on development. Much of the data is collected at the Child Development Lab Rise Program, housed in the College of Human Sciences. As for teaching, my courses include both graduate and undergraduate courses in early childhood education. In terms of professional service, I am heavily involved with the Oklahoma Partnership for School Readiness/Oklahoma Governor's State Early Childhood Advisory Council, where I am a board member designee and chair the board's Special Populations Workgroup.
