Sandra K. Kanouse received her Ph.D. in School Psychology from Central Michigan University in 1999. She completed her predoctoral internship at Children's Seashore House, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in 1995 focusing on assessment and treatment of behavior and learning problems presenting in children. Upon completion of internship, she worked within hospital-based clinic for pediatric behavior problems. Dr. Morgan also worked for three years as a school psychologist in a public scho​ol setting prior to joining the faculty at CMU in 2000.

Research Interest:

My research interests include behavioral assessment of childhood academic and behavioral skills, interventions to promote academic, behavioral, and social growth, and low incidence disabilities (with an emphasis in vision impairments). Through a training clinic focusing on the assessment and interventions for children with ADHD, I remain interested in pediatric consultation for common childhood disorders.
