Dr. Stacy Lauderdale-Littin is an associate professor in the Department of Special Education at Monmouth University, where she coordinates the Masters in Education-Autism track and applied behavior analysis programs focused on training future teachers and behaviorists to work with students with autism. She spent six years as an elementary school teacher for children with autism in Los Angeles before attending graduate school at University of California, Riverside (UCR), where she received her Ph.D. in special education. She also completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center focusing on skill acquisition and behavior reduction procedures within the classroom setting.
