She is bilingual (English/Spanish) and previously worked for 16 years as an ESL teacher and textbook author/editor for Macmillan Publishers in Mexico City. Lindsay has also been trained as a Parent Advocacy Training Facilitator for the A.G.Bell Association and has given presentations on Advocacy internationally and nationally. Lindsay is a co-author of The Guide to Listening and Spoken Language: a parent-friendly, convenient checklist of information and strategies for learning to listen and talk.
