David Rabiner was named an associate dean for Trinity College in June 2013. Prior to that appointment, he served as the director of Program Evaluation Services at the Center for Child and Family Policy, the faculty advisor for the School Research Partnership Office, and the director of undergraduate studies in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience.
Rabiner's work focuses on ADHD and interventions to improve academic performance in children with attention difficulties. He recently completed a study of two different computerized interventions for elementary school students with attention difficulties and a study of the misuse and abuse of ADHD medications among college students. He also has longstanding interests in improving the quality of care received by children with ADHD and in the relationship between children's social experience and their social cognitive functioning.
Current projects include a longitudinal study of children with ADHD and a newly launched study to provide classroom behavior management training to elementary school teachers in two rural counties. These projects are funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and the Department of Education.
Rabiner has created a website where he makes available a number of ADHD/ADD resources. Everyone is welcome to visit the site and to sign up for "Attention Research Update," a monthly e-newsletter in which Rabiner reviews new studies on ADHD/ADD that are published in leading medical and psychology journals. The website: www.helpforadd.com.
