AREA OF RESEARCH: Resiliency Traits and Students with Learning Disabilities

What draws you to this area of research?

As an educator, I watched countless students with learning disabilities succeed in academic coursework. I also saw students who struggled, unable to meet grade level standards no matter what accommodations were provided. I am interested in researching the reasons some students with LD possess resiliency traits that allow them academic success while others do not.

Would you like to collaborate?
