Early Childhood Special Educator

Tell us a little about your approach to early intervention:

I believe in establishing a strong relationship with parents and caregivers in order to best support the needs of each child.  Parents are their child’s first and best teachers.  I strive to encourage parents to help their child reach their goals through offering individualized strategies and support.  I believe in supporting children by meeting them at their developmental level and building on their strengths through intervention based on play and their everyday routines.
