Hi. I became a special education teacher in 1976 (when the field was still new!). For the last 30+ years I have worked with students with a wide variety of disabilities who ranged in age from 3 to 25+ years old.
My passion for the last 14 years has been children with autism.
I taught an early intervention program in an Orange County school district for nine and a half years then branched out on my own and now provide direct instruction in families' homes.
I have extensive ABA training and experience as well as great familiarity with the use of visuals. I have been trained in the TEACCH system and the use of PECS. In addition to my basic teaching skills, I am able to develop and implement learning and behavior goals including social skills and community-based training. I am also available to interface with your school district, if needed.
