Tai A. Collins received his Ph.D. from Louisiana State University in 2013.  He currently teaches graduate courses including the Applied Behavior Analysis sequence, Advanced Behavior Theory and Practice, and Academic Assessment & Intervention.  Dr. Collins is primarily interested in the development of time- and resource-efficient behavioral interventions to support African American students in urban schools with limited resources.  Dr. Collins has focused on developing peer-mediated interventions to address the academic, behavioral, social, and emotional needs of students within multi-tiered systems of supports (e.g., School-Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, Response-to-Intervention).  Dr. Collins is also interested in the development of strategies to reduce the overrepresentation of African American students in special education, as well as to increase the number of African American students receiving gifted education supports.
