My colleagues have honored me with numerous awards over my 30 plus years in education of serving students with autism and other developmental disabilities. I have written two books and made hundreds of materials to use in the classroom, home and community. I love working with people and supporting teachers in the classroom. I am an advanced certified autism specialist.
I use evidence based practices that include visual supports. I have been called the "autism whisperer" by some of the teachers I support.
