Eileen Napoliello, B. A.

Research Assistant

Eileen graduated from George Washington University with a degree in Speech and Hearing Science. She joined the Center for the Study of Learning in 2003 as a research assistant and has attained experience in all aspects of subject recruitment, subject screening, neuropsychological and behavioral assessment of children, and data management. Prior to joining the Center for the Study of Learning she worked as the program coordinator for Reach Out and Read, an early pediatric literacy program, at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, Newark, NJ. She also has had experience working with children with Pervasive Developmental Delay and Autism, both in a naturalistic setting and in a home-based discreet trials therapy program. Eileen plans to continue her graduate studies in speech language pathology. Her academic focus is on how the brain processes speech and language. Eileen's interests are in language acquisition, the development of literacy skills, TBI and aphasia. She has a special interest in working with families living in poverty.
