Jennifer M. Cunha, Esq.

Jennifer Cunha is an attorney who formerly taught inner-city children how to read. With that experience, she began teaching her cockatoos phonics and reading skills through a modified approach to systematic phonics instruction. She uses strong conditioning techniques to build vocabulary, and has taught her parrots to correlate phonics to vocabulary development for purposes of enrichment and communication. Jennifer collaborated with University of Miami to investigate parrots’ phonics skills, and their partnership has resulted in groundbreaking research in animal cognition that has been submitted for peer review and publication.
Jennifer is co-owner of MyReadingPets, an organization dedicated to parrot communication and literacy, and is the author of Consenting Birds: Teach Your Parrot to Communicate Yes and No and Parrot ABCs: Teach Your Bird to Read.
