I have worked in classrooms as well as home-based intervention programs for children with Autism from grades Pre-K through 12th. I am currently working on a PhD in Special Education with a focus on Autism.
My training is primarily in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), but my teaching is also influenced by Montessori and structured teaching methods for students with Autism, such as TEACCH.
