University of Florida
Elizabeth Athens began graduate studies in behavior analysis at the University of Florida in 2002, under the supervision of Timothy Vollmer. Elizabeth’s research interests include the development and implementation of interventions for children who have fallen behind academically or exhibit problem behavior. Elizabeth is specifically interested in the variables affecting learning under a discrete trial format, parametric evaluations of common behavioral treatments, and the development of verbal behavior in young or developmentally delayed children. Elizabeth has conducted research in several diverse settings, including the laboratory, schools, and homes and has examined the effects of treatment integrity failures on acquisition of complex discriminations, acquisition of verbal behavior, and methods to increase compliance using quantitative shaping procedures.
