Cheryl M. Jorgensen, Ph.D.
During the 2021-2022 school year I will be available to do presentations at school, district, state, and national conferences. Except for those students with whom I've had a long term relationships I won't be doing individual student consulting except via phone or Zoom. My newest book is available from Brookes Publishing.
And now a little bit about me. From 1985 until the spring of 2011, I was a faculty-researcher at the University of New Hampshire's Institute on Disability focusing on inclusive education for students with autism, intellectual, and other developmental disabilities. I'm now in semi-retirement and able to focus on the work about which I am most passionate. That includes school-wide systems change, policy advocacy, professional development, and writing. I particularly like working with students with Down syndrome and their educational teams.
I hope that this website will serve as a resource for engaging me to work with you -- families, educators, and others who are interested in supporting students with significant disabilities so that they may enjoy satisfying social relationships, be welcomed members and full participants in general education classrooms, and be college and career ready by the time they graduate. Don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
