Dr. Emily Jones and I are Co-Directors of SIBS Club, which is a community program for families of children with Autism. Our first evaluation of the program is being published in the Journal of Intellectual Disabilities. We have also collaborated on a number of research projects evaluating the effects of video modeling on social skills, presession attention on tecting, and social referencing training for children with Autism.
Dr. Carolyn Pytte is a basic neuroscientist who teaches behavioral neuroscience courses. She is a content expert in neuroanatomy and collaborates with ACE Lab in developing neuroanatomy instruction. We have partnered to examine how stimulus equivalence principles inform lectures, she has evaluated participant outcomes for the purposes of social validity, and more recently collaborated on the evaluation of classroom applications of equivalence-based neuroanatomy instruction.
Dr. Ward-Horner is the Director of Behavioral Education and Treatment at the Evergreen Center, which is a day and residential treatment center for children and adolescent with developmental disabilities. His research interests include staff and parent training and the analysis of variables contributing to students’ preference and performance for response-reinforcer arrangements. Drs. Ward-Horner and Fienup have collaborated on several studies examining preference for and performance during response-reinforcer arrangements in individuals with brain injury and developmental disabilities (papers 1, 2, 3).
Dr. Gary Pace was Dr. Fienup's mentor at the May Center for Education and Neurorehabilitation, a private school that serves children with traumatic brain injury. We continue to collaborate on research projects and have a number of publications together that evaluate academic interventions for children with brain injury (money counting, reading), and the effects of response-reinforcer relations (initial study, parametric analysis).
Drs. Kim Shamoun and David Roll operate Behavioral Intervention Psychological Services (BIPS). We have collaborated on research dealing with the comparative effectiveness of empirically supported prompt-fading procedures. Additionally, several ABA Master's a Doctoral students receive clinical training through BIPS.
