Address :

I am an autism consultant. I come into the home to assist parents and children with day to day activities and challenges. I use the TEACCH Model and keep current by attending advanced training annually.

Treatment and Education of Autistic and Communication related handicapped CHildren is a competency-based model for teaching children and adults with autism.

How can I help?
Through this structured teaching model we can build communication, self-care, vocational skills, and recreation/leisure skills.

Structured teaching is errorless learning. Work systems are highly individualized, taught by me, and then implemented in the home.

How do we begin?
I begin by listening to you. We’ll discuss your concerns for your child in your home or in school. I will ask about his/her areas of needs, strengths, likes and dislikes.

Together we will choose a goal to work on first.

Then, we’ll organize the environment for meaning and attention; schedule the day for success; and create work systems to sequence steps of tasks.
