About the Author:

Kathryn Bigelow, Ph.D., is an Assistant Research Professor at the Juniper Gardens Children's Project in the Institute for Life Span Studies at the University of Kansas. Her research focuses on interventions for culturally and linguistically diverse children and families experiencing multiple risks. Specifically, her work has addressed early childhood language and social-emotional development and the translation of evidence-based interventions for parents, care providers, home visitors, and early intervention providers within both center-based and home-based early childhood education programs. Dr. Bigelow's work in these areas maintains an emphasis on implementation fidelity, and how technology can promote engagement and enhance the implementation of evidence-based intervention. She has been the PI or Co-PI on projects focusing on child language promotion, and on parent engagement in home visiting. Currently, she directs, with Drs. Carta, Irvin, and Hemmeter, an Institute of Education Sciences-funded (IES) research project focused on developing the Infant-Toddler Pyramid Model, a three-tiered model to promote social-emotional outcomes for infants and toddlers, based on the TPITOS.
