Andrea Ruppar

Rehabilitation Psychology & Special Education (RPSE)

Dr. Ruppar’s research focuses on building the capacity of schools and teachers to provide meaningful, evidence-based, inclusive education for students with the most significant disabilities. This includes multiple disabilities such as intellectual disability and autism. She earned her Ph. D. from the University of Illinois in 2011 and completed a post-doctoral traineeship at the University of Florida. In her recent work, she has examined:

  1. Adolescents’ access to literacy and communication;
  2. The role of teachers in promoting access and involvement in the general curriculum within inclusive contexts; and
  3. The development and evaluation of expertise among teachers of students with the most significant disabilities.

A former K-12 special educator, Dr. Ruppar is particularly interested in the influence of the social context of teachers’ workplaces on decision-making. She is the past recipient of the Council for Exceptional Children Student Research Award in the area of qualitative methodology, and the American Educational Research Association Special Education SIG Student Research Award. Her work is published in peer-reviewed journals and she is regularly invited to lead workshops across the country on promoting access to inclusive literacy instruction for students with significant disabilities and autism.
