LET CHILDREN, YOUTH, & FAMILIES BLOOM.
As an educator and researcher in the field of education, specifically Deaf Education and Interpreting, I focus on empowering our communities to find effective means of educating ALL of our children & youth to the best of their abilities. To that end, I serve on the board of several educational organizations. I am the vice president of the American Society for Deaf Children (ASDC) and I was appointed by the Maryland State Senate to serve on the Governor’s Advisory Committee for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ODHH), and I offer presentations and workshops that enable anyone who wishes to learn & bloom. If you would like me to assist you, your staff and / or your organization please schedule your free consultation. I offer trainings for educators, parents and interpreters in the areas of language development, maneuvering the IEP process, literacy development , educational interpreting and more.

Dr. Egbert's enthusiasm, passion, creativity, and wealth of practical knowledge make her a solid choice for your next Deaf Education, Deaf Studies, or Interpreter Training event. Whenever I'm at a conference and see her on the schedule -- that's the workshop I make sure to attend. What can I say? I like to be entertained and educated at the same time.

Lisalee came to our school to speak at our weekly parent group meeting at the Maryland School for the Deaf, it was amazing to watch as the lightbulb's went off in the parents as the impact of Lisalee's message hit them. We were lucky enough to have her present to staff that same afternoon. Lisalee's message is powerful and moving. I hope to have her come back every year to speak with our families and staff.

"Dr. Lisalee Egbert has given me keen advice time after time. I had the honor of working with her on many projects, of which her direction was always clear, confident, and apt. I also have been a participant in her workshops. Her depth of knowledge applies to linguistics, sign language interpreting, language acquisition, and of course the most passionate topic of hers, Deaf education. Every time I see her name listed as a presenter in a conference program book, I go."
