Having Dyslexia and ADHD, I very much understand the learning challenges that face students. After struggling throughout school due to my own learning challenges and dropping out of University, a second chance at college came my way and I was able to turn it around, earning a first-class honours degree from University College Cork and a Masters in Disabilities Studies from University College Dublin.
Since then, I’ve gone on to complete a Marie Curie Fellowship at UMass Medical School in Boston, and I proudly won Young Researcher of the Year at the International Conference on Computers Helping People with Special Needs (ICCHP) in Austria.
I’ve trained hundreds of SNAs and families across Europe and the United States to use technology to help kids learn more effectively.
