JoAnne M. Malloy is a Clinical Assistant Professor at Institute on Disability at the University of New Hampshire. Dr. Malloy received a Master’s Degree in Social Work Administration and Planning from the University of Tennessee in 1981 and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Education from the University of New Hampshire in April 2011. She joined the staff of Institute on Disability (NH’s University Center for Excellence in Disability) in 1991 and has directed several state and federally-funded youth transition, employment, and dropout prevention projects with a focus on youth with emotional and behavioral disorders. In 1996, she directed a demonstration project to create transition planning and employment opportunities for youth with emotional and behavioral disorders, known as RENEW (Rehabilitation, Empowerment, natural supports, Education, and Work). RENEW has since been replicated in educational, mental health and juvenile detention settings in New Hampshire, producing positive educational, vocational, and behavioral health outcomes. Dr. Malloy has developed a RENEW training and implementation system, enabling replication of the model in several states, school districts, and mental health agencies and across the country.
Dr. Malloy has also developed and directed two projects funded by the U. S. Department of Education that link Positive Behavioral Supports and Interventions (PBIS) with dropout prevention. Dr. Malloy has published numerous articles and book chapters on employment and transition for youth with emotional and behavioral challenges.
