One of my greatest strengths is the diversity of audiences for which I can write. During my work in the private sector, I learned to do in depth research on a wide range of fields, learning each field’s specific terminology, underlying concepts, presuppositions, standards and perspective, then using that knowledge to “translate” both research design and subsequent analysis into language appropriate for a wide range of audiences. I have written for both professionals and lay persons involved in policy making and service delivery in fields including education, special education, elderly nutrition, traffic safety, energy conservation, and various government entities.
My experience as a teacher of students with moderate disabilities further strengthens these writing and editing skills. I specialize in taking standards, lessons, and textbook material and rewriting these materials to suit the specific needs of individual students. In the process, I may completely rewrite the material, simplify the language, add diagrams or illustrations, change the formatting, in short whatever is necessary to make it work for a particular student.
I am creative and resourceful in finding ways to make material clear to a specific audience, and I have the research, psychological and educational training to determine exactly how to communicate with the target audience.
