I started out as an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher and Early Interventionist in Oregon after getting my Masters’ degree in 1999. I have worked in a variety of roles over the years with infants and young children including completing evaluations, home visits, direct teaching, and providing consultation to community preschools. I have most of my experiences around young children who have a disability in teaching specialized instruction of children birth-5 of all types and abilities. I have taught in a full inclusion setting for over a decade. I have many years experience teaching all sorts of toddler groups, blended preschools and self-contained special education preschool groups in the metro area.
I currently consult to families and work directly with them around the needs of children who learn differently. I can complete individualized instruction for a variety of one on one situations in the home, community or with small group intervention to support routines and boost developmental progress.
Previous to my graduate education, I worked with adults of all ages who had issues with mental illness and/or developmental disabilities in a variety of medical and non-profit settings.
Please contact me if interested in a consultation session around your child’s and family needs.
