Bio

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 investigation of the relationships between trait mindfulness and substance abuse in college students with trauma histories, in collaboration with Dr. Lindsay Schenkel. The goal of this project is to inform a larger study on the development and evaluation of school-based prevention of substance use problems.
