About Me: My experience includes working in both private and public school systems with a team implementing IEPs and attending PPTs. In addition to my work in the educational setting, I also have experience in private clinics. I am comfortable providing services in both one-on-one and group settings. I have worked with kids of all ages, toddlers to high school and the adult population. I have worked extensively with the autism population providing services both one on one and in social groups. I am able to communicate at the conversational level in both Spanish and American Sign Language (ASL). I like to incorporate Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) and a variety of stimulating materials into my sessions to ensure motivation and success. Collaboration with families and other professionals is important to me because it ensures carry-over and generalization of speech and language skills across a variety of settings. Most importantly, I enjoy seeing the children I work with be successful!
