Dr. Bambara's specialization is in developmental disabilities, with a particular interest in children and adults with moderate and severe disabilities who engage in difficult problem behaviors.  Her research has focused on positive behavior interventions as well as choice and self-determination strategies for helping people with severe disabilities speak out and do more for themselves.  More recently, her interests have focused on understanding systemic issues that affect the long-term adoption of positive interventions in school settings and supports needed by team members to sustain their commitment to students who engage in challenging behaviors.
