Dr. Alison Cox, PhD, BCBA-D

Dr. Alison Cox received her PhD. in Psychology from the University of Manitoba in 2015. She is also a Board Certified Behavior Analysis – Doctoral. Throughout her PhD, Dr. Cox was involved in a variety of research initiatives ranging from developing measures to reliably identify preference in individuals with profound multiple disabilities to teaching children and adolescents with autism to successfully undergo MRI procedures. As an Assistant Professor in the Applied Disability Studies program at Brock University her research interests continue to be diverse. However, her primary interest involves examining the effects of psychotropic medication on behaviour. Namely, how medication changes impact the form and function of behaviour. Through her current and past research and clinical experiences, Dr. Cox has developed specific expertise in assessing and treating severe challenging behaviour in individuals with dual diagnosis and acquired brain injury, supporting skill acquisition in individuals with dual diagnosis and autism, and supervising early intensive behavioural intervention programs. Dr. Cox has presented her work at international and national conferences, and is published in several prominent behaviour analytic journals.
