Dr. Askin has over 20 years of experience in the field of cognitive impairment and developmental learning disorders.  She earned her Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Gettysburg College in 1991 and earned an MA in Learning Disabilities from Northwestern University in 1993.  After working for a few years as a Learning Disabilities Specialist, she went to the University of Rhode Island where she earned a Ph.D. in School Psychology in 2001. Her doctoral dissertation was specific to the area of reading disorders and was funded by a grant from Haskins Laboratories at Yale University in New Haven, CT.
