Stephanie Gerow, Ph.D., is a research associate in the Department of Early Childhood, Multilingual, and Special Education. Her research areas are parent-implemented interventions and professional development for early intervention professionals. She conducts research with young children with developmental delays or disabilities (e.g., autism, intellectual disabilities). Gerow has expertise in early childhood special education and applied behavior analysis.

Gerow works closely with a team of faculty and students to conduct research. She has two primary research projects:

  • Gerow is conducting a project to develop a social-emotional skills intervention for young children with developmental delay who engage in problem behavior. The intervention, titled FBA-EC, will be for use by early intervention professionals who work in IDEA Part C services (i.e., birth-to-three services).
  • Gerow’s second related area of interest is in parent training for children with developmental disabilities via online coaching.

Awarded Research and Personnel Preparation Funding

Gerow and her colleagues have received funding through the Institute of Education Sciences, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and Office of Special Education Programs.
