I also obtained my certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in the fall of 2014. I also hold my Principal's Certification.
Previously, I was a teacher at a few different private schools for children with autism, teaching life skills and vocational skills using the prinicples of Applied Behavior Analysis. I currently teach in the Autistic Support program at Downingtown High School West . Within this program, I teach Social Dynamics. This course teaches adolescents appropriate social skills, coping skills, self-advocacy, self-awareness and healthy living habits to promote a healthy and happy lifestyle.
