Hi, I'm Lane McKittrick, co-founder with my husband, Todd, of Hear See Hope. In addition to being the mom to four boys, including Conner and Dalton who have Usher syndrome, because of my experiences as a parent, I went back to school and received my Ph.D. in Special Education at the University of Northern Colorado. I started a new non profit called Lane of Inquiry where i conduct special education research specific to deafblindness and provide family support. My research interests are deafblindness and family-professional partnerships. I hope to use this blog to share updates on my family and my research. My goal is to provide information and support for families living with Usher syndrome. Research into a cure is vitally important, but I know from experience, family support in dealing with day-to-day issues is critical as well. Thanks for reading. For more on my education research, visit Lane of Inquiry's website or my academic site.
