About Benet

My entire life and my passion is in educating children who have unique learning needs. I have worked as a special education teacher and as an administrator for 30 years, primarily with students who demonstrate significant cognitive, sensory, and/or developmental delays. I recently left the classroom to care for my aging parents, but find I miss working with children. Finding just the right supports to facilitate each child's successful infusion into educational, community, and family settings provides such fantastic rewards!
I have had extensive training and experience with educating children and adults who have autism. My motto is: "try another way", and I've developed a pretty creative repertoire of techniques and supports to maximize a person's potential. I firmly believe that all humans, even those who experience significant challenges, can and will achieve their goals -- as long as we provide them with services and supports to "level the playing field" a bit. Picture schedules, social stories, environmental structures, and sensory integration activities are often critical components to such a plan. I am effective at providing instruction and supports where they naturally occur, whether that means teaching appropriate skills in a restroom or in the community.
