Dr. Gilroy is accepting students for Fall 2024. 

My clinical work and research focus on supporting preschool and school-age children with various developmental, behavioral, and learning difficulties. I am certified and work clinically as both a School Psychologist (NCSP) and a Behavior Analyst (BCBA-D) and my work and research take place in schools and early intervention settings. I earned my Ph.D. in School Psychology at Temple University. Before coming to LSU, I trained at the Munroe-Meyer Institute (University of Nebraska Medical Center) and the Kennedy-Krieger Institute (Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine). I spent several years abroad on a Marie Skłodowska-Curie research fellowship (National University of Ireland-Galway) developing and evaluating free/open-source apps designed to support autistic individuals.

You can find additional information on my training, research, recruitment, and other student opportunities listed on my lab website.
