Philosophy of Care

I love to find ways to get my students get excited about improving themselves by learning new skills. My goals for them are feeling good about themselves and having them become independent and self-regulated learners to the greatest extent possible. Every single one of them is a member of this society. We all need to accept who is in our society and how our society maximize the potential of individuals functioning as a member of this world.

I have worked with students with multiple and severe disabilities (specifically students with Autism) in a variety of settings for over 10 years. I have developed Individual Education Programs (IEPs), put together different curricula, prepared lesson plans, and created other instructional materials to meet the individual needs of students (considering factors such as physical, emotional and educational levels of development). I have been trained in a variety of teaching (TEACCH) and behavioral strategies (Applied Behavioral Analysis, Positive Behavioral Supports and Reinforcement Systems, etc.). I have collaborated with members of the educational team and put together behavioral support plans that teach practical, social, cooperative, self-help, academic, and daily living skills. I have also worked in conjunction with, trained, and evaluated Skills Trainers to ensure effective implementation of students’ plans.

Philosophy of Care

I have a passion for teaching, learning, and working with others. I love working with students with Autism and other disabilities because I believe that every student is capable of learning and being successful. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) provides a strong foundation that allows us to systematically apply specific interventions and measure their efficacy. When we are able to discover what works with an individual it opens doors to improving their quality of life, and in essence, we are changing lives.

 

We offer 1:1 intensive individualized behavioral teaching.

Our evidence-based treatment will help children acquire communication and behavioral skills that can lead to a decrease in destructive, disruptive, and unsafe behaviors.

Students will learn alternative prosocial and productive behaviors. We will help to improve student’s skills in the areas of interpersonal communication, problem-solving, academic, leisure, self-help skills, and integration into the community.

We also offer a variety of other School-Based Behavioral Health Services, including BISS, Paraprofessional, Parent Training, Functional Behavior Analysis (FBA) and Group Therapy.
