As part of my efforts to help more families dealing with Usher syndrome, I was happy to be interviewed by Professor Amy Parker of Portland State University for her Orientation and Mobility On the Go Podcast. In this podcast, I share insights with Amy about the role of the Orientation and Mobility Specialist in supporting the development of self-determination skills from my perspective as a mother and from the perspective of a graduate researcher. I include practical advice for O&M students and practitioners for working with individuals, families and teams. You can listen to the podcast or read a transcript. Thanks, Professor Parker, for the opportunity.
