Dr. Meyer’s current program of research reflects her training and experience working in the field of school psychology. Her primary research interests involve youth with emotional and behavioral challenges. She is interested in the examination of how school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) and Response to Intervention (RtI) can play a role in identifying and meeting the needs of students with emotional and behavioral challenges. She am also interested in how PBIS and RtI might address the needs of African American youth and if these methods might impact in the overrepresentation of minorities in special education.
