Biography

Dr. William (Bill) McKee is Director of the Psychoeducational Research and Training Centre and Assistant Professor of School Psychology and Special Education in the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia. He has been involved in research and graduate training at UBC for the past 12 years.

Bill worked with a broad spectrum of children and youth with special needs as a special education teacher, prior to undertaking doctoral work in School Psychology at Louisiana State University. Following his doctoral study, he worked as a School Psychologist in the Olympia Washington public schools, one of the first districts in the United States to provide full-inclusion in neighborhood schools for all students with disabilities. A major focus of his current work is the planning and delivery of psychological and educational services to students with special needs. A particular emphasis of this work, both in clinical training and research, is the integration of professional services and effective processes for planning and implementation of services for children and youth with special needs (CYSN). Bill has been involved for several years with provincial efforts to respond to needs of research and development of services for CYSN. Of particular interest are the efforts by the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Children & Family Development, and the Ministry of Health to develop a Framework for Action in responding to key issues of Waits, Gaps and Overlaps, Inconsistent Standards and Service Quality, and a Complex and Disjointed Service System.
