Schools across the nation are facing challenges supporting students with diverse learning needs and behavioral challenges. Starting with a comprehensive Needs Assessment, consultation services offer districts an actionable plan to meet the needs of all of their students, staff and administrators.
Professional Development trainings offer school district staff and administrators the opportunity to broaden their understanding of critical topics and the issues surrounding them. All trainings are taught using evidence-based adult learning methodology and offer a dynamic and engaging alternative to traditional trainings.
All too often schools find themselves in the unfortunate situation where they must defend the programs they have created for students with diverse learning needs. High quality Program Evaluation offers school districts an opportunity to identify their program's strengths and gaps and create action plans for remediation. On-going Consultation can assist districts in ensure the quality of their programs over time.

For the past 20+ years I have been working in the field of serving individuals with diverse learning needs, specifically those on the autism spectrum.

When I'm not working with clients, I am busy keeping up with my very active six-year-old son. My favorite weekend activity is enjoying the outdoors and performing in improv shows at Happier Valley Comedy in Hadley, MA.
