I've worked with children as young as 14 months old, frequently staying with them as they enter the school process, to about seven years of age.

Hello. This is my story.

I have worked extensively with young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am a recent Long Island, NY transplant with over 30 years experience providing ABA services. After many years as a special education classroom teacher, I became an Early Intervention ABA therapist in 2002. Nassau County has a 2 tier certification process for ABA providers, along with required yearly coursework. As a tier 2 provider I was responsible for writing and updating programs, along with providing Family Training services to help parents and caregivers follow through with strategies that produce the desired results. Behavioral and sensory needs which interfere with the acquisition of age appropriate skills will also be addressed. Over the years, I have developed an effective and eclectic teaching style. I’ve worked with children as young as 14 months old, frequently staying with them as they enter the school process, to about seven years of age. Once your child’s goals have been established, they will be embedded into Natural Environment Teaching (NET) methods. Music and movement,  books and songs, play-doh and puzzles,  will all be part of your child’s ABA program. My initial and most important goal is to bond with your child.  Once a comfortable relationship has been established, the real work can start!
