Research Experience
University of Saskatchewan

       2001 – 2002

       “A Model-Testing Study of Working Memory Measures: Early Assessment Tools for Students At-Risk
       for Learning Disabilities.”
           - This research project is supported by a University of Saskatchewan grant of $5000. The project
               investigates how measures of working memory can be used to assess students at-risk for
               learning disabilities. I am collaborating with a graduate student who will use the study’s data
               for her thesis.
        2001

        “Policies, Practices and Procedures in Special Education in British Columbia.”
           - I am also part of a research team that is working in concert with the Human Rights Commission
                of British Columbia. The Ministry of Education in BC is involved in a lawsuit with BC’s
                Deputy Commissioner for Human Rights over the state of educational services in BC’s public
                schools for students with learning disabilities.

Simon Fraser Univeristy

              The project team worked to develop a computer application that supported student learning
              through self-regulation.

Brock University

        1996 – 1997

        “Reading Assessment and Diagnostic Project at Kernahan Park High School.”
           - This project was led by Jim Wagner and involved a team including Dr. Wagner and three
