Dr. Lane also served as the PI of other federally-funded projects including: Project WRITE, a Goal Area 2 Grant funded through the Institute for Educational Sciences, focusing on impact of writing interventions for students at risk for EBD who are also poor writers; an OSEP directed project studying positive behavior support at the high school level; and an OSEP field-initiated project studying prevention of EBD at the elementary level. She has expertise in school-based intervention and statistical analysis including multivariate analysis of longitudinal data sets. She is the co-editor of Remedial and Special Education and is an associate editor for Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions and Education and Treatment of Children. She also serves on several editorial boards including Exceptional Children, the Journal of Special Education, and Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders.
