ENGS is proud to introduce a new class to our distinguished curriculum,
Children With Special Needs.
Instructor: Dr Kimberly Bell
Governesses and Nannies who are knowledgeable about various disabilities can better assist special-needs children. Since more children are struggling with autism, for example, a nanny who has an understanding how to work with autistic children can manage and nuture her charges more effectively.
Dr. Bell is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 15 years of experience treating children, adolescents and families, specializing in learning issues, parenting, separation anxiety and women's issues. From 2005 to 2010, she served in a variety of capacities at the Hanna Perkins Center for Child Development, including co-director of the outpatient mental health clinic and director of the pre- and post-doctoral training programs. She has taught at Hawken School, John Carroll University, the English Nanny and Governess School and the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, and has presented on child and adolescent development throughout the Cleveland area. She earned her bachelor's degree at the University of Michigan-Dearborn and both her master's and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology at the University of Detroit-Mercy.
