Hello! My award-winning books help students and adults succeed, including those with autism and other special needs. My book Smile & Succeed for Teens is a crash course in social and job skills.
As the former owner of an award-winning specialty business, my books promote and teach the simple premise that good service is good business - that if you treat your customers (or patients, or donors) well, you will be rewarded in return.
To order CLASSROOM PACKS, TEACHING GUIDES and individual copies of my books please Visit My Website.
I am honored that Temple Grandin called me and urged me to use her testimonial (below) to get my book out to all teens and adults to teach social and job skills and lower the unemployment rate:
"Smile & Succeed for Teens is a fantastic resource to help teens be successful at work."
--TEMPLE GRANDIN, Author, Thinking in Pictures, The Autistic Brain
I'm not a teacher, but when I do presentations or training this is my teaching style: Fun, Direct, Empathetic, Emphasis on Role Playing and Building Confidence.
