    I’ve had many years of training in sensory integration, reflex integration, fine motor, visual motor, multisensory approach for children with visual impairment and ocular motor training. I also have extensive training working with children with Autism, previously trained as a member of a multi discipline autism assessment team for LISD.

    I believe strongly in empowering families to facilitate development of their child, and I work hard to focus on what is important for THEIR family.  A child’s job is to play and that is how I focus on skill development.  I simply LOVE kids and have a passion for improving their lives and the lives of their family.  I believe all children have a gift to share and anything I can do to enhance that gives me an intrinsic JOY.
