Dr. Katherine Herron is an assistant research scientist with the Early Childhood Center (ECC) at the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, Indiana University, Bloomington. Dr. Herron has a background in Clinical Psychology. Her focus shifted to early intervention during graduate school when her son was born with a disability. Her experience as a parent in First Steps, the state’s early intervention system, led her to work as a service coordinator and outreach coordinator within the same system, as well as on grants focused on parent advocacy and transition. She currently serves as chair of Bloomington’s city-supported Council for Community Accessibility. At ECC, her research focus is on improving the quality of early intervention and education systems through the use of evidence-based family-centered practices, including the promotion of high family expectations for young children with disabilities.
