I have worked in classrooms as well as home-based intervention programs for children with Autism from grades Pre-K through 12th. I have a Master's Degree and PhD in Special Education with a focus on Autism.
My training is primarily in Pivotal Response Teaching (PRT), but my teaching is also influenced by Montessori and structured teaching methods for students with Autism, such as TEACCH. I love making activities that are fun and meaningful to students, incorporating their interests whenever possible.
