Broadly, I am interested in reading development. My work explores many different areas
of reading development. First, I examine the association between executive function
and reading development through the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten
Class of 2010-2011 (ECLS-K:2011). Specifically, I am exploring how working memory
and cognitive flexibility mediate the relation between kindergarten socioeconomic
status and later reading achievement. I am also interested in the Science of Reading
and dyslexia laws, which happen to overlap in many states. I write about translating
the reading screening literature for practitioners. Finally, I am interested in how
science teachers are prepared to implement reading strategies in their classroom.
This work is done through interviewing science teachers to learn more about their
preparation and use of strategies for students with disabilities.
