About the Author
Laura J. Hall began her work as an educator working for the Princeton Child Development Institute shortly after graduation. The excellent training and coaching in the implementation of applied behavior analysis with learners with autism that she received inspired her to pursue further education. Her current research focus is on identifying strategies to improve the educator-learner interaction to increase effective implementation of evidence-based practices by educators working in schools. She is a site Co-Principal Investigator on a multi-site federally funded RCT study of a comprehensive educational program for high school students with ASD. She is a co-author of book chapters in several handbooks with a focus on evidence-based practices and ASD, including the recent Handbook of Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorders: Assessment, Intervention and Policy, 4th Edition. As Department Chair, for Special Education at San Diego State University, she works in collaboration with colleagues in the college, colleagues in the community, including parents of students with ASD, and, most importantly, new colleagues or graduates of the MA. Degree program with a specialization in autism that she worked to establish at SDSU. Follow up studies reveal that the graduates of this program remain in the field and sustain their use of evidence-based practices. This Masters Program is currently supported by federal grants from the Office of Special Education Programs. She is also the department liaison with the Behavior Analysis Certification Board.
