We're excited to welcome Amanda Dill, LMSW to our Lane of Inquiry family! Learn more about Amanda.
Of all the roles and responsibilities I have, the most important and valuable to me is a mom. I have 3 children, 2 of whom have Usher Syndrome type 1b. My son Rowen and daughter Collette were identified as having Usher syndrome at a very young age. This diagnosis came with its own set of challenges - the knowledge of what was to come but also the knowledge to provide them with the best opportunities we could as a family.
I am also a School Social Worker, which means my life is spent working in special education, both professionally and at home. I am a member of the Michigan Association of School Workers and the School Social Workers Association of America and I serve on the Special Education Advisory Committee for the Michigan Department of Education. I am very thankful that I have this background as I am able to advocate not only for my own children but also for the families and children that I work with in school. The work that I do each day is incredibly valuable to me and I enjoy having these worlds connected.
I am honored to be a board member for the Lane of Inquiry and am looking forward to learning more about and helping families of children who are Deafblind. Lane has been an incredible resource for me and for so many and I look forward to the continued work as a member of her team.
