Research Summary

Dr. Ardoin's research interests include the application of principles of applied behavior analysis within classroom settings. He applies these principles not only to developing classroom and individual student behavioral interventions, but also to developing academic skill interventions and assessment materials. Much of his current research employs eye-tracking procedures in order to observe the reading behaviors engaged in by students when reading and how those behaviors are altered as a function of intervention. In addition to sharing this knowledge base with graduate students in school psychology through classwork and collaborative research, Dr. Ardoin teaches courses that make up the course sequence offered by UGA and approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board towards BACB eligibility requirements.
