I earned a Master of Science degree from Northeastern University in 2003. I am a certified American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) member and hold dual certification through the Rhode Island Department of Health and the Massachusetts Department of Health. I also hold a Rhode Island teaching certificate specifically for speech-language pathology. I continue to maintain licensure and certification through continuing education courses and regular attendance of ASHA conventions.
Over the years, I have worked in several settings with a variety of age ranges (infants-geriatrics) including private schools, public schools, trauma centers, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals and home therapy.
I have attended the following conferences in Michelle Garcia Winner's Social Thinking® methodology:
•Thinking About You Thinking About Me
•Implementing Social Thinking Concepts and Vocabulary: A Day To Develop Creativity
•Social Detective, Superflex®, and Friends Take On Social Emotional Learning
Other unique workshops and trainings I have attended include:
PROMPT® Level 1 (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets) PECS Basic Training (Picture Exchange Communication System) and LAMP (Language Acquisition through Motor Planning).
I am in the initial stages of Talk Tools® (oral placement therapy for feeding and speech) training as well.
