Dr. Alison Kozlowski is a licensed psychologist in the Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program at Kennedy Krieger Institute and is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Dr. Kozlowski graduated with her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Louisiana State University in 2013. After completing her coursework, she completed her doctoral internship at Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in the Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program and Neurobehavioral Unit-Outpatient Program. Afterward, she completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in the Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program.
Since that time, she has been a licensed psychologist and doctoral-level board certified behavior analyst in the Pediatric Feeding Disorders Program at Kennedy Krieger Institute where she supervises the assessment and treatment of children with feeding disorders admitted to the day treatment or inpatient feeding program; provides outpatient behavioral psychology feeding services; supervises doctoral interns and postdoctoral fellows; and conducts research related to the assessment and treatment of pediatric feeding disorders.
Dr. Kozlowski’s current research interests are closely related to her clinical work with children with feeding disorders. More specifically, her current research endeavors consists of group design and single-case design research focused on evaluation of intervention strategies to decrease problem behaviors during mealtimes, assessment of the effectiveness of behavioral treatment of feeding disorders across children with a variety of developmental and medical disorders (e.g., autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy), and generalization of behavioral feeding treatments to more naturalistic environments and to caregivers.
