Carolina Gavilanes. M.A., M.Ed.
Carolina is an Education Specialist at the Center for Developing Minds. Her knowledge in developmental, neurological
and learning disabilities drives the design of individualized interventions that help students throughout their learning
process. She specializes mainly in literacy development for elementary students and enjoys supporting students of all
ages who are struggling with organizational skills. Her therapy sessions are designed to make students feel successful
and understand their challenges and strengths. She provides case management and collaboration among teachers, parents
and clinical professionals.
For more than 20 years, she has experienced the field of education from many lenses: from the classroom as a teacher
in Early Childhood, to an education specialist in Special Education, as a university faculty member and a teacher
trainer, to a co-founder of a Learning Support Service Center in Ecuador.
In addition to her work at the CDM, Carolina is an online faculty member for the Education Department at the Universidad
San Francisco de Quito, in Ecuador, and designs online courses.
Carolina holds a M.Ed. in Special Education, with a specialization in Educational Diagnostician from the University of
New Orleans, and a Master of Elementary Education degree from the University of Alabama. She earned her B.A. in Education
with a concentration in Psychology from the Universidad San Francisco de Quito.
