- Author BiographyDonna Morere, Ph.D., has been involved in the field of deafness since 1986. She has been a faculty member in the Clinical Psychology Program at Gallaudet since August, 1990. She is the Neuropsychological Assessment Director for the VL2 Psychometric Toolkit Study and Early Education Longitudinal Study (VL2EELS). Dr. Morere also maintains a private practice in Clinical Neuropsychology providing services to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing using ASL, Cued Speech or Oral communication. Since the early 1990s, the focus of this practice has been children with complex special needs, primarily those affecting language development. Dr. Morere's research interests include primary language disorders in deaf children, adaptation of neuropsychological assessment instruments for use with deaf and hard of hearing individuals, cognition and memory, executive functioning and attention disorders, and reading and language development in deaf children. Thomas Allen, Ph.D., is the Founding Director of the VL2 Center and currently serves as its Co-Principal Investigator. He holds a faculty appointment in the Department of Educational Foundations and Research, where he has taught courses in statistics and research design. Dr. Allen formerly served a 9-year term as Dean of the Graduate School at Gallaudet. Prior to becoming Dean, Dr. Allen was the Director of the Gallaudet Research Institute, where he conducted or supervised many large-scale statistical studies of the deaf population in the United States. These included an annual survey of deaf and hard of hearing children and youth and two national efforts to develop norms for standardized achievement tests for the population of deaf and hard of hearing students. He designed and conducted studies of national patterns of classroom communication strategies for deaf and hard of hearing students, and a longitudinal study of school to work transition for students who are deaf. As the Dean of the Graduate School, Dr. Allen has implemented Ph.D. programs in Linguistics and Audiology, an Au.D. professional doctorate in Audiology, a Masters of Arts in Teaching that focuses on preparing teachers to work in bilingual ASL-English environments, a Master of Arts degree in International Development, and a Master of Arts degree in Deaf Studies. He currently is the lead investigator for a several ongoing research projects at the Visual Language and Visual Learning (VL2) Center at Gallaudet University.
