Dr. Shahidullah’s clinical, research, and training interests pertain to increasing access to behavioral health services within schools and primary care. He has a special interest in models of collaboration between families, schools and health care providers, particularly around the assessment and treatment of ADHD.

Dr. Shahidullah is also interested in studying issues pertaining to implementation science, particularly the implementation of mental health evidence-based practices in non-traditional settings and with low-income ethnically diverse children. Other research interests include primary care and school-based screening, intervention, prevention, and care coordination of

commonly occurring pediatric health-related concerns including sleep, feeding, and toileting problems, asthma, and diabetes.

Dr. Shahidullah is a member of the Editorial Boards for School Psychology Quarterly and School Psychology Forum.

Dr. Shahidullah is PI of a multi-site study which aims to evaluate the implementation of various psychologist-delivered behavioral health training curricula to pediatric residents in several hospitals/medical centers in the northeastern United States. This project also aims to train pediatric residents in school health collaboration to improve primary medical providers' communication, collaboration, and coordination with school personnel around students presenting with chronic and acute health conditions in schools.
