I have been teaching students with multiple disabilities and autism in upstate NY for 19 years and love it!! I have extensive training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Applied Verbal Behavior (AVB), PECS and teaching students with language based disabilities.
My teaching style is eclectic. I believe teachers need to be flexible and responsive to students' needs. Most of my teaching incorporates language development, manipulatives, movement and hands-on opportunities. I strongly believe that lessons and materials can and should be made to accommodate multiple levels.
My degree is in special education and my masters is in reading.
