Biography

Dr. Reichow’s current research interests include the translation of research to practice, the use of systematic review methods and meta-analytic methods to identify evidence-based practices, and applied research involving young children with or at risk of developing disabilities and their families. His research has been supported through numerous external funding agencies, including the Institute of Education Sciences. He is currently working with colleagues at the WHO, where he is a standing technical advisor, and other international sites to develop practice guidelines and training materials to increase the identification, management, and treatment of children with developmental disabilities in lower- and middle-income countries. Along with center members Drs. Behnke and Snyder, he recently led a pilot of the WHO Caregiver Skills Training, which he helped create and develop, in rural Zambia.

Dr. Reichow is currently Co-Editor in Chief of the Journal of Early Intervention, the leading journal in the field of early childhood special education and early intervention. He is also an associate editor for the Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, and Campbell Systematic Reviews and serves on numerous other editorial boards. Dr. Reichow has received numerous awards and recognition for his work including the 2010 Council for Exceptional Children, Division of Research Early Career Publication Award.
