Dr. Kizzy Albritton

Dr. Kizzy Albritton is an Assistant Professor of school psychology at Kent State University. She earned her Ph.D. in school psychology from Georgia State University. She also holds a Master of Education degree in Behavior and Learning Disabilities from Georgia State University. She began her educational career as an elementary and middle school special education teacher. Dr. Albritton currently teaches graduate courses on the diagnosis of childhood disorders, instructional assessment procedures, and child & adolescent development. The overall goal of Dr. Albritton’s research agenda is to provide insight into the current practices of school psychologists in early childhood settings. Although there continues to be a significant increase in the number of children attending early childhood programs along with increased attention to the expansion of the role of school psychologists in early childhood settings, there continues to be limited research specifically examining school psychologists and early childhood education. Additional scholarly interests include the effective implementation of Response-to-Intervention models in early childhood settings, and improving the academic outcomes for students from ethnic minority backgrounds. Most recently, she was awarded a College of Education, Health, and Human Services (EHHS) Pre-Tenure Faculty Research Development Award and a EHHS Internal SEED Award.
