Dr. Bamonto has been teaching in the RIT School Psychology Program since the fall of 2003. Her primary research interests are related to the use of Curriculum-Based Measurement to improve academic outcomes for students at risk for learning disabilities and academic failure, especially in the area of basic reading. Related interests include implementation of systems-level reforms such as Response to Intervention, Multi-Tier System of Supports, and family-school partnerships.
Dr. Bamonto’s current projects include an article for a special issue on school psychologists as systems-level consultants for the Journal of Psychological and Educational Consultation. The manuscript is entitled Beyond the rhetoric: School psychologists as systems-level consultants in promoting effective family-school partnerships. She also is collaborating with Professor Maria Cristina Joly, an educational psychologist in Brazil, on developing a larger set of studies entitled, CBM to IDC: A cross cultural investigation of basic skills’ assessment in schools.
