Research Interests

I am interested in how symptoms associated with Attention-deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD; i.e., inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity) relate to classroom behavior and academic achievement. I am particularly interested in studying this relationship in children starting kindergarten, as well as how these relationships change as children progress through school. I also study parenting attitudes and behaviors that support the development of academic enabling classroom behaviors (e.g., engagement, prosocial skills) in children with symptoms of ADHD.
