Short Biography

Dr. Amy Wilson, Associate Professor, teaches International Development with People with Disabilities in Developing Countries, Introduction to International Development, as well as research to deaf and hearing students at the graduate level. Dr. Wilson began her teaching career in 1979, teaching the sciences to deaf and hard of hearing students in a mainstreamed public high school in suburban Chicago. After 12 years, she then spent several years as a volunteer with the Mennonite Central Committee in northeast Brazil where she did teacher training and community development work with Deaf communities in rural areas.

Inspired by her work in Brazil, she returned to the U.S. where she earned her Ph.D. at Gallaudet University's Department of Education (2001), focusing on curriculum development with an added specialization in International Development from coursework completed at American University. In the area of disability and development, Dr. Wilson is interested in researching how to empower deaf people and those with disabilities in developing countries in Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, and South America.

At Gallaudet, she is the Program Director of the International Development Programs.
