Laura Stough’s professional career has been spent addressing disparities in the provision of educational and social services for people with disabilities. Her current research investigates the psychological and social effects of disaster on individuals with disabilities. Dr. Stough serves as the Assistant Director of the Center on Disability and Development and Interim Chair of the Division of Learning Sciences for the Department of Educational Psychology. Dr. Stough is also Director of Project REDD: Research and Evaluation on Disability and Disaster, which has investigated the impact of disasters, including Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Ike, and the Bastrop County Complex Wildfire, on individuals with disabilities. Project REDD also has conducted large scale evaluation studies of organizations that provide disaster services and produced disaster-related publications, workshops, and resources. She recently published “Disability and Disaster: Explorations and Exchanges” together with Dr. Ilan Kelman of University College London. The book features narratives written by authors with disabilities across the globe who have been effected by disaster, and provides a critical analysis of assumptions about disaster vulnerability. Dr. Stough’s research has been supported by research grants through the Centers for Disease Control, the Association for University Centers on Disability, the Department of Education, and the National Disability Rights Network. Dr. Stough provides education and outreach through her participation in the State of Texas Disability Task Force on Emergency Management as well as presentations and training on disaster preparedness and disability throughout Texas.
