Matthew Gormley

Assistant Professor, School Psychology

2016 Ph.D., School Psychology, Lehigh University
2011 MA, Human Development, Lehigh University
2008 BA, Psychology, State University of New York at Genesco

I am an Assistant Professor in the School Psychology program. My research focuses on students at-risk for, or diagnosed with, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). I am specifically interested in interventions that build collaboration between families, schools, and healthcare settings to support these students across their academic careers (e.g., elementary, secondary, and post-secondary). Currently, I am focused on two areas: (a) supporting students with ADHD across grade-level (e.g., 3rd to 4th grade) transitions using a collaborative parent-teacher consultative intervention (modified from Conjoint Behavioral Consultation); (b) I am interested in supporting students with ADHD as they transition to and complete their college education.

 

Additionally, I teach Assessment of Intelligence (EDPS 950), Systems of School Consultation (EDPS 952), and School Practice in School Psychology (EDPS 981) courses and serve as the Faculty Representative to the UNL chapter of the Student Affiliates of School Psychology (SASP). I am also the University Connections and Ethics Chairperson for the Nebraska School Psychologists Association and serve on the Public Policy Committee of Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD), the largest national organization for individuals with ADHD.
