Lorraine Chevarria joined A Shared Vision as an Early Intervention Teacher of the Visually Impaired in 2019. She also works full time as a Teacher of the Visually Impaired and a Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist for the Adams-12 Five Star school district. She has over 11 years' experience working with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged children, and adults with visual impairments, dual sensory loss, and sensory processing disorders.
Like many A Shared Vision teachers, Lorraine believes in building strong relationships with her families. "I believe early intervention is for the family, not just the child who qualified for services," explains Lorraine. "Every member of the family plays a vital role in the success of the child, and I like to ensure the families' values and concerns are embedded in each visit we have. Meeting the goals on the IFSP are important, but building relationships is a huge part of what makes home-based services so valuable." Lorraine also enjoys teaching braille, and orientation and mobility.
A Colorado native, Lorraine loves spending time with her friends and family. When it's football season, she can be found cheering for the Denver Broncos. "I've been a Broncos fan right out of the womb!"
