My expertise areas are in occupational therapy for young and school-aged children with disabilities as well as the associated team collaboration and service delivery practices in public school settings. I teach the majority of pediatric occupational assessment and intervention courses in this OTD curriculum. Also, I teach in the OTD Capstone development and implementation courses. My service activities have included the planning and obtaining approval of the OTD program through the Texas Board of Regents, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the initiation of the OTD accreditation planing through the ACOTE. I serve on the Roster of Academic Accreditors for ACOTE. I am a board member of the Texas Occupational Therapy Foundation for research development. I was the principal investigator for the US Department of Education 5-year grant called: Project Reaching More: Increasing Highly Qualified Occupational Therapists to Service Children with Disabilities($1,000,093.000).
