Welcome.  Thanks for visiting my website.  You will learn about me, my work, and research.  You'll also find information about my books, tests, and publications.  You will also be able to participate in my current research.   

On this page, I want to give you some information about myself, my background, my educational training, and my work experiences.

About me in a nutshell.  I am married, have three children and seven grandchildren.  I am semi-retired and play golf regularly and travel a lot.  I consult a little with universities and parents who need my help on projects involving autism, behavioral disorders, juvenile delinquency, and other issues concerning children with special needs.  I continue to conduct research and publish, and once in a while, I present at conferences or do workshops.

I have taught at State University College at Buffalo, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Eastern Michigan University, Western Washington University, the University of Michigan and The University of Texas at Austin, as well as other colleges and universities.  Over the years, I have consulted with parents, universities, state agencies, and schools in the United States and foreign countries on issues related to children with disabilities.  I have published several books and diagnostic tests.  I hope you enjoy reading about them.

   In the fall of 2014, I will be conducting two research projects.  The first involves an individualized test of pragmatic language.  The second will be an individualized test of the cognitive processing abilities of children on the autism spectrum.  If you have participated in any of my research projects in the past, I will email you a notification of the new research.  If you haven’t previously participated in my research but would like to, send me an email and I will put you on the list of research participants.  As always, I will pay you for participating.
