Claire E. Cameron is Associate Professor and director of the Early Childhood & Childhood EdM and PhD programs in the Department of Learning and Instruction at the University at Buffalo (SUNY).  Claire studies how children develop “learning to learn” and school readiness skills like managing their attention and behavior and successfully navigating learning environments. She’s best known for her research to develop the Head-Toes-Knees-Shoulders (HTKS) task, a game-like assessment for children that has been translated into over twenty languages. She also developed the Motor Skills Rating Scale (MSRS), a teacher-report survey of children’s motor skills in the classroom.

In 2007, Claire earned a PhD from the University of Michigan’s Combined Program in Education and Psychology. She moved to Buffalo from Charlottesville, VA, where she completed a postdoctoral fellowship (2007-2009) and served as Research Scientist (2009-2015) at the University of Virginia’s Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL).
