Dr. Jacki L. Anderson, Coordinator of the Education Specialist Moderate/Severe Credential and Master’s Degree Program at CSU East Bay, received a Special Committee Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the combined areas of Special Education/Severe Disabilities, Communication Disorders, and Child and Family Studies. She is credentialed in the areas of Severe Disabilities, Learning Disabilities, and Orthopedic Impairments and was a classroom teacher of students with severe disabilities for ten years. Dr. Anderson also holds an Administrators credential.

She has over thirty years’ experience conducting inservice training activities around the country and has taught for 28 years in Special Education teacher training programs at the University of Wisconsin, San Francisco State University, and CSU East Bay. The Education Specialist teacher preparation program at CSUEB is a dual credential program where students receive both Multiple Subjects and Special Education credentials at the end of 6-7 quarters of study. This is the only such program in the state in the area of students with Moderate/Severe Disabilities. Program graduates are known for excellence in providing effective and innovative educational practices, particularly in the areas of Inclusive Education and other areas of School Reform, Effective, Systematic Instruction and Positive Behavior Support.

Dr. Anderson’s areas of specialization include TeacherTraining, Inclusive Education Recreation, Employment and Life for individuals with Severe Disabilities, and Positive Behavior Support. She has been awarded federal funds to pursue all of these interests via research, training, and model demonstration projects and has published the results in textbooks, chapters, training manuals and journal articles. External funding of approximately $4,500,000 has been awarded to Dr. Anderson, much of this in conjunction with Dr. Ann Halvorsen. They were recently awarded a four-year, $800,000 personnel training grant to support the joint credential program in the area of moderate/severe disabilities via recruiting and providing financial and mentoring support for students, establishing joint field training schools, developing curricula for increased access to general education curriculum and enhanced field supervision.

Dr. Anderson served for 15 years as Training Coordinator for the Rehabilitation, Research and Training Center on Positive Behavioral Support, a six University consortium dedicated to developing and disseminating practical technologies for supporting individuals with behavioral challenges in inclusive school, work and community environments. As a result, a network of 26 State teams were developed to work collaboratively to provide training and technical assistance to assist local communities in building the capacity to provide effective behavioral supports in inclusive settings. Six years after the end of the project (up to 18 years after some of the teams were formed) a large percent of the teams continue to operate using the Association for Positive Behavior Support (APBS) and/or the national PBIS technical assistance center to promote networking activities.

Dr. Anderson is actively involved in a variety of local, state and national organizations and policy making committees. Examples include: founding member, Vice President and current board member of APBS, chair of the Executive committee and Executive Vice-President of the International TASH organization during 10 years on the board; past president and current board member of CAL-TASH, the California chapter of TASH; President of the Board for Casa Allegra Community Services (providing supported living, integrated work & microenterprise services for individuals with severe disabilities), Berkeley USD Special Education Advisory Council and a member of the Steering Committee of CIS(Californians for Inclusive Schools), a consortium of organizations lobbying for legislation and policy to support inclusive schooling.
