Position: Mentor for Newly Diagnosed People with Parkinson's
Categories: Mentors for Newly Diagnosed

I am 71 and just retired from 45 years teaching psychology at CSU Dominguez Hills in LA. For the last 35+ years I taught and studied the psychological impact of technology. Along the way, through my many journal articles and through authoring 7 books about that topic all around the world, I have garnered the title of Father of the Psychology of Technology. I serve on two scientific boards (Children and Screens nonprofit and the Psychology of Technology Institute where I am on the Institute board and the scientific advisory board). I am now giving back by working with my local elementary school district by providing parenting talks every other month and helping parents deal with their kids during the pandemic. Personally, my PD is in an interesting state with tremors controlled by meds (unless I get stressed) but cognitive issues showing up (but it’s hard to disentangle cognitive issues from aging issues). Still have some other minor symptoms mostly typing as my left hand can no longer keep up with my right when typing. A true challenge!
