Develop new skills and strategies to meet your child's needs through consultation, coaching, professional development and workshops.
Do you work with children on the autism spectrum? Are you the parent of a child with special needs? Do they exhibit sensory processing needs? Fine motor deficits? Or visual-motor issues that impact their handwriting?
As a school-based occupational therapist with over 30 years of experience, I offer workshops, professional development, speaking and coaching to educators/parents of children on the autism spectrum. I also speak to college students and other interdisciplinary professionals who work with this population. You will learn how to implement classroom strategies, and help your students gain towards independence.
Together we can surpass awareness with education to help our students succeed. Let’s come up with a plan that works for you and the children you serve.
My presentations help you identify the signs & symptoms, along with strategies to be implemented. You will be able to answer: Why are my students behaving this way and how can I better support them?
