Learning and Behavior Problems in Education: Challenges and Solutions
The research of the group Learning and Behavior Problems in Education: Challenges and Solutions addresses learning difficulties in the development of reading (both reading comprehension and technical reading), math and writing and examines learning-related behaviors, such as attentional and motivational processes that contribute to and/or result from such difficulties.
The research is both fundamental and practical to understand the nature and etiology of learning and behavior difficulties, as well as to develop methods and techniques to improve learning and behaviors of children, youth, and young adults in education. An underlying theme of the research is to develop ways to enhance successful participation of students (elementary-, secondary-, and college-level), parents, and teachers in education.

- Development of literacy skills
- Early numeracy
- Fluent reading
- Data-driven intervention
- Curriculum-based measurement (CBM)
- Dynamic testing
- Reading motivation
