Eric Jerman, COMS
Eric Jerman is a graduate of Reed College in Portland, Oregon, and he earned his MEd (Orientation and Mobility) from the University of Massachusetts Boston.
He is an employee at the Perkins School for the Blind, in Watertown, Massachusetts, where he is an Orientation and Mobility Specialist working with children aged three to fourteen with developmental disabilities, including cognitive, physical and behavioral disabilities.
Eric is father to a three-year old son who has a rare metabolic disorder that has resulted in his son’s global developmental delays and visual impairments, including Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI). While spending two years as a stay-at-home dad with his son, Jake, Eric was quick to exploit the iPad for use as a tool to assist his son with communication, education, and entertainment.
Eric has presented on the topic of iPad Apps at parent support groups; an annual workshop of educators and parents; Children’s Hospital, Boston; A.E.R.’s regional technology conference; and has been training low vision teachers on the use of iPad Apps at Perkins School for the Blind, in Watertown.
