2010: Allison Tetreault


West Virginia University


Allison Tetreault has conducted research on the function and generalization of non-word vocalizations, on the effectiveness of different modalities of parent training, and on the utility of various standardized assessments with children with autism while working with the Texas Young Autism Project in Houston, TX. Her master’s research involved the application of signal detection theory to observer accuracy, teacher training, and data collection. Allison's master's thesis focused on teaching social initiations to children with autism using point-of-view video modeling. During her doctoral training at West Virginia University, Allison worked on several studies examining behavior analytic methods in school and home settings. Additionally, she has conducted research on child development, with both typically developing and developmentally impaired children. Allison's primary area of interest is the impact of variability training on early language development. Her dissertation focused on the historical effects of exposure to lag schedules on vocal variability.
