About

I am currently a teacher of children with autism. I enjoy creating different objects for people to enjoy and use. I truly believe in quality of our products and work out every detail to create beautiful pieces.

I have personally seen weighted object work. I have also seen compression items and visual/picture schedules be effective in assisting children. When these items are used in conjunction with a good behavior plan, all are most effective.

I hope parents and teachers will send questions, conversations, etc., where we can discuss and share an open dialogue to give support and share information with each other.

I truly love every aspect of working with parents and teachers. It truly is a joy and brings light into my life.
