I have been the reading expert for the Principals as Literacy Leaders (PALL) program, offered in every state of Australia, and through this program I have been part of a team gathering pre- and post- data from PALL participants and later undertaking case studies in schools to learn about effective, long-term approaches. This research has been published in reports back to Education Departments, journals, book chapters, and a purposely written book.
I am a member of the Research in Inclusive and Specialised Education (RISE) group at Flinders University and work collaboratively with colleagues to advance knowledge and practice.
I regularly offer professional learning sessions for teachers, leaders, and managers in education sectors across Australia with a particular focus on using evidence-based research to inform practical and sustainable planning and programming.
Since 1989 I have worked closely with the Specific Learning Difficulties Association of South Australia (SpeldSA) as an academic mentor to the Directors. I have been a teacher in both mainstream and special classes, an adaptive education teacher, and a district-wide disability Coordinator. I was the founding member of the South Australian Education Department's Learning Difficulties Support Team and have managed literacy and numeracy action research projects.
At Flinders University I teach undergraduate and postgraduate topics focusing on school students who have literacy and/or numeracy difficulties.
