Lane McKittrick, who founded Hear See Hope with her husband, Todd, continues to expand her efforts to find treatment and a cure for Usher syndrome by pursuing her doctorate in deafblindness at the University of Northern Colorado.
She presented her research at the Council for Exceptional Children Conference in Tampa Feb. 9, 2018. Her presentation, with Dr. Silvia Correa-Torres of UNC, was on Teaching Self-Determination to Elementary Students with Sensory Loss.
She and Todd founded Hear See Hope after their oldest son, Conner, was diagnosed with Usher syndrome. The foundation raises money to find a cure for Usher, the leading cause of deafblindness in the United States.
