I am a PA certified Special Education teacher, with several yearsâ€™ teaching experience with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (Autism, Aspergerâ€™s, PDD, etc.) at both the high school and Early Intervention level (age 3-6).

I am a PA Certified teacher in the areas of Math (Middle and High School), Science and Special Education. Much of my teaching experience has been working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD - autism, Aspergerâ€™s, PDD) and ADHD for math and science, and with Early Intervention students (age 3-6) with severe autism. My focus for these students combines academic and behavioral learning (preferably ABA) and my studentsâ€™ areas have ranged from basic math to Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry. Please see my note on Autism for additional information.
The most satisfying work I have done has been 20+ years working with and teaching children and adults (and their parents) with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD - autism, Aspergerâ€™s, PDD) and ADHD.
