I've created multiple forms over the years to assist therapist, special education staff, and teachers manage the required documentation. I have a passion for non-verbal students, students with autism spectrum disorders, and students with poor behaviors. Now, I'm ready to share my work with you! I'm hoping my experience of working with a variety of settings, with a variety of students, parents, teachers, special education directors, principals, superintendents, diagnosticians, therapists, and school physiologist will help YOU to be a more equipped professional on your campus.
