Kathryn "Kate" Saunders, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, has been granted Fellow status by the Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) Fellows Committee and Executive Council.

"Her research on stimulus control has contributed substantially to the knowledge base of a wide range of topics from reading instruction to equivalence class formation to conditional discrimination, particularly as applied to individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Dr. Saunders's work is a model of translational research that not only bridges experimental and applied behavior analysis but also builds connections between behavior analysis and traditional audiences in reading and the communication sciences. In addition to writing for a large number of behavior analytic journals, Dr. Saunders has made her work visible in the broader community of scholars by publishing in journals such as the American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Augmentative and Alternative Communication, and Developmental Disabilities Research Reviews.

Her extensive record of funding by NICHD and most recently by the U.S. Department of Education is powerful testament to her skills in helping non-behavior analysts appreciate the relevance and importance of a natural science approach." ~ The Selection Committee
