Cindy Neil

Hello, my name is Cynthia (Cindy) Neil. I have served on the CAEDHH National executive for many years, as a regional director, a National Director, acting National Director and now as a Past National Director.

When I was 10 years old, I started to lose my hearing for unknown reasons. By the time I was 15 I had a profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss.

I completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of Manitoba in 1994 and then completed my Masters Degree in Educational Psychology; Deafness Studies, Special Education at the University of Alberta in 1996 under the tutelage of well known professionals in our field such as Dr. Michael Rodda, Dr., MaryAnn Bibby and Dr. Rod Beattie.

I look forward to continuing on the National CAEDHH Executive and will continue to advocate for our profession and bring commitment and dedication to all the professionals we work with across Canada.
