He is a winner of the Senior Scientist Award given by the Division of School Psychology of the American Psychological Association and a past Editor of School Psychology Review, the official journal of the National Association of School Psychologists. Dr. Shapiro has written numerous books and other publications in the areas of curriculum-based assessment, behavioral assessment, behavioral interventions, and pediatric school psychology.

Among his many projects, Dr. Shapiro has recently completed a federal project focused on the development of a multi-tiered response-to-intervention (RTI) model in two districts in Pennsylvania. He has been working as a consultant to facilitate the implementation of RTI with the Pennsylvania Department of Education as well as with many individual school districts across the country.
