At the age of 13years old Cheryl was the primary care taker of her twin sisters, her mother and father both had to work and in the evening she was left to baby sit. In Cheryl earlier years there were not many places equipped to handle minority children with this type of disorder. Cheryl being a very bright child herself understood the importance of helping her sibling to learn as much as possible. Cheryl took it upon herself to read and research as much as possible on this disorder. Cheryl wanted to be able to help her sisters live as normal a life as possible.

          Cheryl graduated from St. Anne high school in 1966 with honors to receive a scholarship to attend A & T University in Greensboro N.C. where she earned a bachelor degree in psychology. Cheryl worked her first teaching job in Guilford County in a children home for children with Autistic Disorder. While working in this children home Cheryl earned her Master Degree and PHD in psychology at Duke University.
