Dr. Pamela Beach is currently an Associate Professor at the The College at Brockport (SUNY) in New York State. Her area of expertise is Motor Development and Motor Learning. She has published a first-of-its-kind textbook entitled Motor Learning and Motor Development through Human Kinetics Publishers, thus joining the two fields into one comprehensive undergraduate textbook. Recently, she has served as the chair of National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) Motor Development & Learning Academy. She also serves as a reviewer for several adjudicated journals in the fields of motor behavior, aging, and visual impairment.
Dr. Haibach has two main areas of research: Postural Control and Balance as well as Motor Development Assessments. More specifically, she examines the influence of vision and other sensory modalities in various human populations. This includes healthy individuals ranging from children to older adults and special populations (including children) with CHARGE Syndrome, children with visual impairments and blindness, and older adults with a history of falling.
In addition, Dr. Haibach conducts motor development assessments on typically developing children and children with visual impairments to determine the motor skill weaknesses. This information is then used to develop and implement motor skill curriculums for early motor development.
