Narrative

School Psychologist and sign language interpreter. I work at Perkins School for the Blind in the Deafblind program. I have worked with deaf-blind/deaf-visually impaired, and deaf multihandicapped population for almost 40 years. My work focus is primarily educational/cognitive assessment. I have a great interest in syndromes and their impact on education and "life". This has led me to the acquisition of a CAGS in Clinical Genetics through Brandeis Univ and Simmons College. The students I serve at Perkins and through consulting are deafblind/deaf-multihandicapped with additional handicapping conditions such as ADHD, seizure disorder, chronic health issues, cognitive impairments, behavior/emotional disorders (ie: anxiety, OCD, etc). The students I work with have a wide variety of syndromes all leading to special learning issues and educational needs.
