Keeping Busy

I’ve been very busy lately. About two weeks ago, I gave a presentation at this year’s International Conference of the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research in San Diego, CA. Around the same time, my dissertation was published by ERIC (Education Resources Information Center), the online library of education research and information, sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education.

I have also been honored with an invitation to speak at the 2014 International Conference on ADHD by CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder). My oral presentation is entitled, A copy of my PowerPoint slides are available online. Here’s a video blurb I had to submit when I applied:

My research poster session is entitled, “Neurofeedback and Reading Comprehension: Implications as an Intervention Strategy for Students with ADHD in Public Schools” and will also be presented next week in Chicago.

University of California Doctoral Diploma

At long last! My University of California, Riverside Ph.D. diploma has finally arrived (heck, it only took the university nearly eight months to grow the tree and then make the ink so they could run the paper through a laser printer). Needless to say, I’m thrilled! I am also pleased to find that it states that I earned a Ph.D. in Education (Special Education). Although all Ph.D. Candidates in the Graduate School of Education at UCR earn Ph.D.s in “education,” there are several specializations within the field. Obviously, mine was in Special Education and I wasn’t aware that the specialization would be noted on my diploma (my M.A. diploma did not mention my specialization). Anyway, it’s great to finally receive the piece of paper that signifies that I’ve earned a Ph.D.

UCR Ph.D. Diploma
