What I Do
I am a professor of special education at The University of Alabama and the Department Head of Special Education and Multiple Abilities. I am also the Founder and Director of the Evidence-based International Early Intervention Office (EIEIO). My research interests are in early intervention (birth to age 6), specifically models of service delivery, working with families, and child engagement. I developed the Routines-Based Model of Early Intervention (Birth-6) and am involved in its implementation in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Paraguay, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, and the U.S. I developed the international community of practice called The RAM Group, to provide research and technical assistance on the Routines-Based Model. I teach doctoral students, lecture, conduct workshops, and write. I serve as the International Editor of the scholarly journal Infants & Young Children and serve on numerous editorial boards.
