Welcome Dr Lanya McKittrick

Welcome, Dr Lanya McKittrick

We are pleased to announce that Dr Lanya McKittrick (Lane) has joined the Idaho Center on Disabilities and Human Development and College of Education, Health and Human Sciences as a member of the Special Education Faculty in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.

She is the new Director of the Idaho Program for Children and Youth with Deaf Blindness. Dr McKittrick will be located in our Boise office and will commute from her home in the state of Washington.

She comes to us with both professional and personal experience working with and for individuals with deaf-blindness, which makes her well-suited for the position. As a parent, Lane has four boys – two of which have Usher syndrome. This helps ground her professional work and guides her research.

Please join us in welcoming Lane to the CDHD, College of Education, Health and Human Sciences, and University of Idaho.
