Dr. Curtis' main clinical and research interests include ADHD intervention and community-based primary care delivery of behavioral health services. Dr. Curtis leads the Family Skills Training for ADHD-Related Symptoms (Family STARS) and Pediatric ADHD Intervention Research (PAIRS) intervention studies examining innovative practices in behavioral therapy. Extending upon these interests, he has examined how empirically supported behavioral interventions can be translated for use in community pediatric clinic and public school settings. As Program Coordinator for the Pediatric Primary Care Psychology Program, he has also conducted program evaluation studies in community-based primary care clinics examining non-traditional models of behavioral health services delivery. His primary goals for research are to improve the effectiveness and accessibility of behavioral health services for children and families affected by ADHD, disruptive behavior problems, and other pediatric/child clinical conditions.
