Welcome Dr. Pam Dillion

We welcome Dr. Pam Dillion as a new instructor, teaching EDST8034 Measurement & Assessment, beginning Summer 2016.

Pam is the Director of Student Services at St. Ursula Villa where she consults with teachers and designs support programs to help students with learning differences to be successful in a rigorous curriculum. Her areas of research interest are learning differences, assessment and measurement, and alternative treatment options for ADHD.

She earned a BA in psychology and secondary education from Muskingum University, an MA in school psychology from Xavier University, and an Ed.D. in Special Education and Literacy from the University of Cincinnati. Her doctoral program included a 650 hour internship in an interdisciplinary training program in developmental disabilities at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. She holds both teaching and principal licenses from the state of Ohio. She has worked as an early intervention specialist for Hamilton County Board of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, a behavior specialist for Cincinnati Public School District, and a learning disabilities teacher for Forest Hills School District.

Pam has taught a variety of courses at Notre Dame College in the TEEL Program over the last 12 years. TEEL was designed for individuals who held a degree in a field other than education but desired to earn a teaching license. Her experience in teaching adult learners in an online format makes this program a perfect fit with her experience.
