We are so lucky to have Dr. Jennifer Petrich joining us for this very special edition of Dyslexia Talk. This is a good time to ask all those questions you have about how the brain learns and dyslexia and the brain.
Dr. Petrich's bio: Dr. Jennifer Petrich earned a BA in Sociology from Johns Hopkins University (1994) and a BA in Psychology from Towson University (1995). From 1993-1997, Jennifer worked as a cognitive and reading therapist at New Heights Learning Center in Towson, Maryland, where she was trained in three Lindamood-Bell programs: Lindamood Phonemic Sequencing (LiPS), Visualizing/Verbalizing (V/V) and Visualizing/Conceptualizing (V/C). In 2004, she received a PhD in Neuroscience from University of Maryland, Baltimore after completing a dissertation on developmental dyslexia. She then took a research position at the University of California, San Diego studying the visual system and has lectured there on the auditory system and the neural mechanisms of reading and reading disorders. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Laboratory for Language and Cognitive Neuroscience at San Diego State University.
