30+ years as a Special Education Teacher with emphasis on working with students with Autism. Have worked with all age groups, but love preschool and kindergarten the best. Behavior Specialist. Former Curriculum Supervisor as well.
My classrooms have always been language based with emphasis on communication and independence. I think it is important for every child to be fully engaged throughout the school day in age appropriate and socially relevant activities.
