Instructor Anna Doherty
Instructor Anna Doherty has decades of experience helping people communicate across cognitive difference through her work at Together Editing & Design, teaching English as a Second Language, instructing graduate students in academic writing, and working with children with special needs.
Anna grew up in a family with autism spectrum and ADHD siblings, who improved their social skills and developed solid friendships through Dungeons & Dragons gaming with peers. The effectiveness of this approach inspired her to offer the groups professionally.
Anna’s interest in communication across social and cultural difference is lifelong. She graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in Arabic and Russian, and has traveled and lived in Russia, Switzerland, Jordan, and Turkey.
