Exceeding Your Expectations
Developmental milestones and services can be overwhelming with the abundance of information available. Having worked with and collaborated with various professionals (e.g., speech therapists, occupational therapists, special education teachers and general education teachers) I am able to help others navigate through the process of obtaining services. In addition, my experience as a clinical assessor allows me, to help others identify delays and/or deficits which require further support.
PRESENTER AND SPEAKER
As a board certified behaviorist, much of my current practice is based on applied behavior analysis. Behavior modification applies to several individuals (e.g., typically developing person or special needs) and various areas of one’s life. However my previous work experience includes that of a preschool teacher (e.g., general and special education), behaviorist, ABA supervisor and parent educator. Utilizing my experience, I have created presentations which can be found online (ExceptionalServices4U.com) or presented in person.
Given the ever increasing demands of education, and new research regarding positive behavior supports, there is a need to explore new methods of assistance. Strategies have been created to improve student attention and participation while decreasing the amount of time teachers spend re-directing students. In addition, children can actively take ownership of their classroom and support their peers when properly reinforced. Whether it be tips for increased attentiveness or social/emotional supports, there are several programs created and ready to be implemented in just about any educational setting.
