Dr. Petersen is a certified speech-language pathologist with several years of clinical and research experience. His research is driven by a desire to greatly increase the prevalence of academic success for all children, including those who are culturally and linguistically diverse. Specifically, Dr. Petersen’s research has focused on the identification, validation, and empirical testing of preventative and effective methods of assessment and intervention for reading and language, with two major strands of research that are distinct yet highly inter-connected; early reading assessment using dynamic assessment, and language assessment and intervention using dynamic assessment, progress monitoring procedures, and multi-tiered systems of supports using narrative language.
