Orientation and Mobility Specialist, Vision Rehabilitation Therapist
As an ACVREP Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist (COMS) and Vision Rehabilitation Therapist (CVRT), I work with children and adults of all ages in their home environment. I currently serve students with CVI in the 5 boroughs of NYC and Long Island. My experience is in conducting the CVI Range, providing ongoing intervention and instruction, and collaborating with related-service providers and parents to ensure instructional continuity between home and school. I've had the pleasure of leading parent informational groups, facilitating support groups and developing a CVI summer program for families in Spring Valley, NY. I am a staunch advocate who has provided expert testimony in fighting for CVI-related IEP goals, testing accomodations and the provision of O&M related services. My passion is the intersection of O&M and CVI, and as I continue to work at these crossroads, my goal is contribute to the research and development of best practices.
I am available to:
Provide ongoing, direct service to a child with CVI within 50 miles of my home address
Provide ongoing consultation and technical assistance to an educational team working with a child with CVI
Provide one time evaluation services and consultation
