Philosophy of Care

My interest in audiology started as a child, by learning sign language from Linda on Sesame Street. I realized the critical role communication plays in our lives, in whatever form it takes on. Now, I have the honor of working with families as their children grow from babies into young adults, and helping them maximize their own communicative potential along the way.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Dr. Harris started her audiological career by establishing the Newborn Hearing Screening Program at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, and working with patients who received cochlear implants. She then spent two years at The Learning Center for the Deaf, developing services for students with cochlear implants. She returned to Boston to manage the Newborn Hearing Screening Program at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and finally landed here at Boston Children's Hospital, where she has worked in pediatric audiology and cochlear implants since 2005.
