Kelley Ward

Kelley Ward Furman University

After Kelley graduated from Furman, she went on to study at FSU in their Applied Behavior Analysis Master's Program, training to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). ABA is the only empirically-based treatment for autism at this time, and it was recently named the "Golden Standard" of treatment for individuals on the spectrum.

She is currently an employee of FSU's Early Childhood Autism Program (ECAP), and upon graduating in two years, she hopes to work with adults and adolescents on the spectrum. She says, "specifically, I'd like to use behavior analysis to help them with the functional and social skills necessary to give them and their families more independence and a better quality of life."



Lisa Cantrell

Lisa Cantrell Furman University

After graduating from Furman (working with Erin Hahn in the Learning Lab!) and spending a year teaching kindergarten in Mexico, she started her doctorate at Indiana University in the Fall of 2008. She currently studies under Dr. Linda B. Smith in the Cognitive Development lab where she investigates numerical cognition in infants, young children, and adults. She is interested in what infants know about quantity (do they know anything and how do they "know" it?), how attention to number versus other dimensions for quantity develops over the lifespan, how culture influences quantification, and how number influences other perceptual and conceptual processes in childhood and adulthood.
