Working with special needs children for over 35 years has convinced me of the value of using pictures and visual strategies! As an SLP with classroom experience, I hope that my strategy and pictured packed materials help your students learn more successfully
Learning and communication occur best in an environment of mutual respect and enjoyment. Picture use aids all learning and is so helpful when teaching students with disabilities!
Awards and certificates come and go, but those treasured moments.... a child saying her name clearly for the first time... the boy who asks with words instead of tantrums ... the teacher who said I made a difference for her... the mom who cried because she was so happy... Those are the moments I cherish.
B.A. , M.A. in speech/language pathology and post-graduate studies in the areas of reading, education, autism, and social language problems.
A speech/language pathologist living in New York, I am so happy to be sharing what has worked for me! My experience include students with autism, hearing impaired students, preschool students with a variety of disabling conditions, students with language/learning disabilities who were mainstreamed and students with emotional/behavioral needs requiring special programs. We work hard and I'd be happy to help make your life easier!
