About the Author
  • Miriam Westheimer
    HIPPY
    MIRIAM WESTHEIMER has a MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) She has taught English as a foreign language to children and adults in Israel and English as a second language to adults in the US. Upon completion of her doctorate degree in education at Teachers College, Columbia University, Dr. Westheimer began working to adapt and disseminate an innovative, home-based educational program developed in Israel called HIPPY—Home Instruction for Parents and Preschool Youngsters. Today, in addition to her work as an independent consultant, she serves as the Director of the international network of HIPPY programs. Her current interest lies in the development and dissemination of program models, service linkages and applied research methods that are designed to best support children, youth and families. Through the writing of an English as a Second Language Grammar book, articles on the ethnographic research method, dropout prevention strategies and the HIPPY program, her recent book Parents Making a Difference, and through her numerous speeches, workshops and panel presentations, Dr. Westheimer attempts to bridge the worlds of research, theory and practice.
