Hello, and thank you for visiting my profile.

In 2009, I started working in Special Services and have since acquired a wide range of skills. Some of the programs that I have learned to run with both verbal and non-verbal children ages 3-21 include: ABA Therapy and Academic Discreet Trial Programs. I am also equipped to teach functional life systems and augmentative communication systems.

In addition, I have worked in a K-8 mainstream setting and have reviewed and taught most subject matter.

I look forward to making a difference in your child's life.

Study Skills

When I teach / tutor my students; which I have been doing for the last several years, I believe in implementing a strong set of study skills. While doing so, I try to make it a positive experience and to associate it with fun and self-control, whenever possible. The preferred learning style varies from child to child and once we put together a structured plan that fits their learning style, they will hopefully realize that they can control how they will do both in school and in life.

ADHD,

ADHD

I deal with ADD/ADHD daily. To increase desired behavior, I introduce clear requests followed by frequent positive feedback: praise & token board for earning desired object or activity. I clearly outline consequence for undesired behavior & follow through. To avoid loss of interest in earning rewards I make changes to keep it feeling new.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I work in a Special Services school with autistic children; ages 3 to 21. For the non-verbal children, I use pecs. We work on important life skills including, but not limited to: grooming, social skills in and out of the community and more effective ways of communicating using ABA Therapy and discrete trial instruction.

Special Needs

I have a BA in Psychology and over the past several years, I have worked with children with many special needs. I have worked with: Learning Disabled, ADD/ADHD, Autistic & Asperger's. In addition to teaching the basic content areas,I also work on Life Skills with my more challenged/nonverbal students, I also provide in-home therapy; using Applied Behavior Analysis and discrete trial instruction. Working closely with a BCBA, I follow the "IEP's" specifically designed for my students needs.
