Under the direction of Dr. Brittany L. Hott, Assistant Professor of Special Education, The Texas A&M University-Commerce STRategic Implementation and Dissemination of Evidence-based practices Lab (STRIDE Lab) focuses on developing interventions, strategies, and supports for secondary students with emotional, behavioral. or learning disabilities. Our interests include quantitative research synthesis, assessment and measurement, and evidence-based practice. We serve in a variety of capacities to support school districts throughout the United States and abroad. Our work has been recognized by the Council for Exceptional Children's Teacher Education Division, The International Council for Learning Disabilities, Texas Council for Exceptional Children, and the Greater Texas Foundation.

Our lab believes in the power of interdisciplinary research and incorporating the skills of each team member to meet project goals. Our lab currently employs advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Our goal is to provide experiences that prepare students for graduate study and competitive employment opportunities. We have established mentorship model where students receive support from peers and faculty in a collegial environment incorporating the strengths of each member. We believe that it is important to disseminate our findings and translate those findings for practitioners through a variety of outlets. These outlets include publishing in peer-reviewed journals, presentations at national and international conferences, and professional development activities. Lab members are active members of the TAMUC community and professional organizations.
