I am a parent of a teenager with autism and ADD. I have extensive personal and professional experience with students. I also have an undergraduate degree in psychology and an MS degree in Special Education with a teacher certification. I have worked one-on-one applying the principles of ABA with the moderate to severe students on the autism spectrum. During that time, I provided instruction in basic pre-school functions so that students could attend mainstream classes.
I have tutored students in math, reading, and provided accommodations and modifications so that students could learn how to take a test without anxiety. I have also been employed with the Colonial Intermediate Unit 20, and the Arc of Pennsylvania as a Consultant. These experiences have provided me the opportunity to observe students for needed support in the classroom and instruct teachers on Asperger's syndrome, social skills, standard aligned systems, and functional behavioral assessments/positive support plans within the public school system.
