Research & Scholarly Activity

The main theme of my research is the teaching, learning, and mental well-being of post-secondary students.  I have a number of interests that fall under this theme.  First, the education of school psychology trainees in clinical reasoning and assessment.  Specifically, the development of case conceptualization and report writing skills.  Second, the transition of students in post-secondary and factors that contribute to success.  Related to transition to post-secondary is the preparation for post-secondary for high school students with a disability, e.g., learning disabilities, ADHD, and mental health concerns.
