Research and Professional InterestsJanet Twyman, Ph.D., BCBA

To improve all aspects of life, scientific discoveries must ultimately be translated into practical applications. Dr. Twyman’s research interests involve the continuum from understanding basic processes related to learning and communication (stimulus control, imitation and parity, variability, and novel behavior), to systematically testing lab-based procedures in applied settings, to ultimately building meaningful programs with broad-based application and sustainability. Dr. Twyman has a strong record in the transfer of instructional technology and developing web-based programs for wide-scale distribution. Recent projects include the design and development of a highly effective early reading program based upon principles and procedures from behavior analytic basic science, and the development of reading readiness procedures for learners with intellectual and neurodevelopmental disabilities.
