I have 25 years of experience, and specialize in the field of special education with specific knowledge in the areas of behavioral and learning problems, intellectual disability and learning disabilities. I have published on such topics as behavioral-emotional disability, social skills and community adaptation of persons with disabilities. I have testified 12 times on topics such as lead poinsoning, childhood injuries leading to disabilities and group home care of persons with disabilities in the community. The only area of interest that I have had professionally is special education and related fields. I have earned three degrees in special education (i.e., B.S., M.Ed., Ph.D.) all from the same institution.
