When Michelle Hughes arrived at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in August, she brought two lines of research with her: one aiming to refine the programming of cochlear implants so patients of all abilities will benefit; and a second focused on determining how to effectively provide cochlear implant programming, speech perception testing and aural rehabilitation services via telepractice.
The Lincoln Children’s Museum recently unveiled on its website a new tool intended to make the museum more accessible for all children who wish to visit – a social story. The story is the result of several weeks of collaboration by Emily Dorsey, an assistant professor of practice in the SECD, and Micheale Marcus, Katie Mosher, Rachel Schumacher, and the late Alicia Kruger, all students in Nebraska’s School Psychology graduate program.
