Dr. Berman has been working with children diagnosed with disabilities such as autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity, and others for over 15 years. She holds a master's degree and teaching credential in Early Childhood Special Education, and a doctoral degree in Education with an emphasis in educational psychology. She has taught graduate level courses in curriculum and instruction, assessment, and behavioral strategies. Dr. Berman has also delivered high-quality professional development seminars in the areas of IEP writing, data collection, and classroom management.
I believe that young children should be allowed to engage in open-ended activities and experiences. All children with disabilities should have the opportunity to be educated with typically-developing peers, to the maximum extent that is appropriate.
Dr. Berman is the recipient of several research grants and awards, such as The Naumberg Research Grant (199) and the President's Undergraduate Fellowship (1999). She is a Golden Key Honor Society member.
Dr. Berman holds a doctoral degree in Education from the University of Southern California. In addition, she holds a master's degree in early childhood special education from CSU Dominguez Hills, and dual bachelor degrees from UCLA.
I believe that teachers should not have to re-invent the wheel! It is my goal to make high-quality professional development for staff, and instructional materials for teachers more accessible.
