I have been working as a speech therapist since 2015.  I work with children and adults with language disorders and hearing impairments. I am an MA student in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. In my thesis, I explore the link between spoken and sign language abilities. In the Bilingual-Bimodal project, I am responsible for assessment in the spoken modality.

I am deaf with deaf parents, and therefore Israeli Sign Language is my mother tongue.

In my work as a research assistant I learn new and interesting things about my mother tongue that I never knew before. At the moment, I am studying interactive communication design and social sciences at the Technion, Haifa. In the Bilingual-Bimodal project, I am responsible for developing the linguistic coding, recruiting families and administering the assessments in Israeli Sign Language.
