Dr Jacqui Harvey is a Design Manager and Research Fellow within the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children. Before working at AIFS, Jacqueline taught in primary schools for five years in Australia and New Zealand. She then moved into special education, working in an alternative setting with children with challenging behaviors (e.g., ADHD), also for five years.
While completing educational psychology studies, Jacqueline worked as a psychologist in numerous educational settings at the primary, secondary and tertiary level. This work included counseling (children, adolescents and adults), psycho-educational assessment (specialising in learning disabilities such as dyslexia), school consultations (professional development workshops with school staff), educational research (e.g., investigating outcomes of interventions implemented in schools) and lecturing at the University of Melbourne (undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and educational psychology students).
