You would think that behavior, bilingual intervention, the referral process, vulnerable populations, and narrative development are all separate issues. In a conversation with Dr. Trina Spencer from the University of Kansas, she wove these topics together in a very unique way and we captured the highlights from our conversation in 5 quick videos.

Dr. Spencer is a senior scientist and director of the Juniper Gardens Children’s Project at University of Kansas and holds faculty appointments in the Departments of Applied Behavioral Sciences, Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences, and Special Education.
