Biography

Dr. Kelly L. Edyburn is a postdoctoral research scholar on the Children's Equity Project, where her goal is to strive for intersectional equity and justice by supporting the developmental, mental health, and academic needs of marginalized children and families through strengths-based, culturally and linguistically responsive practice, research, policy, and collaboration. She has worked in various roles in early childhood, K-12, mental health, and juvenile justice settings and has clinical interests in children and youth from Latinx and immigrant backgrounds; children and youth with emotional/behavioral difficulties or disorders; mental health and psychoeducational assessment; and school-based consultation. Her research interests include culturally and linguistically responsive assessment, instruction, and intervention; early Spanish and English language and literacy development among Latinx dual language learners; family–school—community partnership and school readiness; and multicultural measurement and validity issues in education and psychology. Methodologically, she is interested in mixed methods and latent variable modeling.
