Introduction:
My passion is to help families with children on the autism spectrum and with other disabilities. Getting the entire family on the same team is imperative in achieving a high quality of life within the household. Communication is difficult for those on the spectrum, leading to sadness and social isolation. PEERS social skills treatment can catalyze social interaction and improved relationships both within the family unit and the community.
As a past president of the Orange County Aspergers Support Group, I have had the privilege of meeting many families with members who are both diagnosed and undiagnosed. Their stories lead me to continue to search out resources and best practice methods for classrooms, family life and transition to adult independence.
It is my intention to prepare children on the autism spectrum and other disabilities to self advocate and support parents on their journey toward launching their children into adult life.
