Pamela L. Neidert, PhD, BCBA-D
Associate Professor, Department of Applied Behavioral Science
University of Kansas

Presenter Bio:

My experience prior to joining the KU Faculty in 2008 generally has involved assessment and treatment of problem behavior and skill acquisition in children and adults with developmental disabilities.  As a result, I am very interested in early intervention and prevention.  Currently, my research focuses on strategies to facilitate development of critical skills in very young children and evaluate the effects of proactive approaches to prevent the emergence of problem behavior.  Specific areas of interest include facilitative strategies for the development of language, social skills (imitation/attention), and self-help skills (sleeping, toileting, feeding) in both typically developing children and those at risk for, or diagnosed with, disabilities.

Dennis H. Reid, PhD, BCBA-D

Presenter Bio:

Dr. Dennis Reid has over 40 years of experience as a clinician and supervisor in educational, residential, and community support settings for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and has consulted with human service agencies in the majority of states of the United States as well as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. He has published over 140 behavior analytic journal articles and book chapters and authored or co-authored 12 books, five of which focus on staff training and supervision. In 2007 he was awarded Fellowship status in the Association for Behavior Analysis International and in 2006 received the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) International Research Award. Dennis is the founder and current director of the Carolina Behavior Analysis and Support Center in Morganton, North Carolina. He is the lead author on the AAIDD Supervisor Training Curriculum: Evidence-Based Ways to Promote Work Quality and Enjoyment Among Support Staff.

Claire St. Peter, PhD, BCBA-D

Presenter Bio:

Dr. Claire St. Peter received her Ph.D. from the University of Florida in 2006, after which she immediately joined the faculty at West Virginia University (WVU). She is now the WVU Eberly Family Professor of Outstanding Service and Chair of the WVU Department of Psychology. Dr. St. Peter’s research focuses on ways to build new skills for learners, with a particular emphasis on school contexts. This interest, along with the observation that things don’t always go as planned, resulted in a fascination with the details about the fidelity with which behavioral procedures are implemented and what happens when fidelity varies or decreases dramatically.
