Anne’s research interests have centered around establishing evidence-based practices for PBIS implementation in schools. Her initial focus was instructional design and implementation for students with severe disabilities, embracing self-management skills, routines and data-based decision making. 

Her most current research activities focus on developing and testing the Team-Initiated Problem Solving (TIPS) model at the PBIS Tier I level. TIPS is a data-based problem-solving model nested within a set of Meeting Foundations. TIPS guides teams in making data-based decisions that lead to expected outcomes. Current research is being conducted in using TIPS with Tier II Check In Check Out (CICO) data.
