Alexis A. Reid, M.A.

Alexis Reid is an Academic and Learning Specialist and Director of Learning and Academic Services at BCSC. Alexis is responsible for delivering services that focus on the development of executive functioning, educational, and learning-focused skills via individual coaching and group-based formats. Additionally, Alexis provides consultation, workshops, and trainings for parents and educators to support individualized learning needs at home and in the classroom. As an educational coach and educator for more than a decade, Alexis fosters skill development, closes academic gaps, integrates mindfulness practices to enhance learning, and works to meet the academic and social emotional needs of all learners in a dedicated, supportive, and personable manner. Alexis’ approach is geared toward equipping learners with skills required to be purposeful, resourceful, goal-directed, self-regulated, knowledgeable, and engaged learners who know how to advocate for their needs across contexts.

Alexis earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Loyola University in Baltimore, MD and a Master of Arts from Boston College in Applied Developmental and Educational Psychology. Alexis has extensive experience through research and practice in developmental psychology, creating access to learning through Universal Design for Learning (UDL), executive functioning, developmental disabilities, positive youth development, and mentoring.

Alexis has worked in both general and special education roles in many educational settings for over a decade. Most recently she taught in the Boston area for six years where she integrated evidence based practice through a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework to meet the developmental, academic, and social emotional needs of learners with whom she worked. Throughout her time in the classroom, Alexis continued to pursue her affinity toward creating access for diverse learning populations. To that end, she has maintained her work with independent organizations to design and test accessibility options for students with varying support needs. Alexis also serves as an independent contractor for CAST, an internationally-recognized educational research and development organization, in their UDL cadre. In this role she presents workshops to schools, disseminates information, and facilitates online courses while coaching educators and administrators to integrate the UDL framework into their educational settings.

Alexis is committed to promoting equity in learning opportunities through the creation and integration of more flexibly designed learning environments to meet the needs of all learners within inclusive settings. In addition to independent or group educational therapy and parent coaching around executive function skills training, Alexis is also available for speaking engagements, project or school consultations, and private workshops for educators and parents.
