Linda Rammler, PhD, MEd
Recently retired but back at the UConn UCEDD part-time, Dr. Linda Rammler has nearly 50 years of experience in disabilities. Her current projects include serving as an instructor for the Adulting Series, monitoring participation in the online course “A Family Guide to Postsecondary Transition,” supporting People First of CT, and continuing to represent the UCEDD in systems change initiatives such as a BRS grant to transition 14C-waivered day programs to competitive integrated employment opportunities for all.
Other more recent projects at the UCEDD include Customized and Customizing Employment, Think College, and LifeCourse trainings. She has also published articles on transition and employment of individuals with disabilities and complied a White Paper for the UCEDD calling for the elimination of punitive practices in schools. Previously, she provided technical assistance to the CT Special Olympics Healthy Communities Project and Ability Beyond’s Discovery Learn Work services to transition-aged students and young adults. She also served as Project Manager for “A Place of My Own to Call Home” Resource Manual and Curriculum and the “Prep is Personal: Find the Fridge” emergency preparedness for people with disabilities. She continues to provide technical assistance to individuals with disabilities, their families, and others who contact the UCEDD looking for assistance and information on any of the above topics as well as on inclusive education for school-aged children and adolescents.
She is the spouse of a person with disabilities, raised three children with IEPs, and has been a foster parent of youth with behavioral health needs.
