She has been a Clinical Research Project Assistant with the Learning Disabilities Research Program (LDRP) since the spring of 2014. Tamara obtained her Hon. B.Sc. degree, specializing in Exceptionality in Human Learning, Biology and Psychology from the University of Toronto. She then worked for many years in both public and private sectors within the field of social services and education. In 2013, Tamara successfully defended her Master’s thesis at Brock University in the interdisciplinary Child and Youth Studies graduate program where she studied how a handwriting intervention impacts the reading and writing abilities of struggling adolescent learners.
