Join us for a webinar Theory of Mind, Literacy and Deaf Learners presented by speaker Dr. Connie Mayer.

Dr. Mayer is a Professor in the Faculty of Education at York University in Toronto, Canada where she works in the graduate programs in Education, Linguistics, and Critical Disability Studies, and is co-academic co-ordinator in the teacher preparation program in the education of deaf students. Prior to coming to York, Dr. Mayer worked for more than twenty years as a consultant, administrator and teacher of deaf students from preschool through postsecondary. She is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education and for the Volta Review, and a member of the editorial board of the American Annals of the Deaf and the Reading Research Quarterly. Her current research focuses on language and literacy development in deaf learners, early literacy and early intervention, cochlear implantation, bilingualism, and models of teacher education. She has presented widely on these topics both nationally and internationally as well as having authored numerous journal articles and book chapters.  Her co-authored book, Early Literacy Development in Deaf Children, published by Oxford University Press was released in June 2015. In 2016 she was awarded the Sister Mary Delaney Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her work in teaching, research and service in the preparation of teachers of students who are deaf or hard of hearing by the American College Educators of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
