Professional Biography

Throughout my four years as a student in the School Psychology Doctoral Program, I have explored a variety of school-related research interests including iPads and their use in the classroom, stability balls in the classroom, spaced and expanded practice of information on retention, and most recently classwide behavioral interventions. I am continuing to enjoy and learn more about research and am planning on proposing my dissertation this Spring!

Description

Students in special education, particularly those with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders (EBD), are likely to exhibit problem behaviors and a lack of strong social skills. Tootling is a class-wide intervention intended to increase social skills and appropriate behavior. Although the literature is still limited, tootling has been proven to be effective at decreasing disruptive behaviors and increasing prosocial behaviors in general education classrooms. However, research has not yet examined the intervention’s effects in special education settings. This study examined the effects of a tootling intervention on the prosocial behaviors of students identified with EBD. Viewers will learn about tootling, the study that was conducted, and implications for using tootling within special education populations.
