Her autism and social language techniques include training with Vincent Carbone PhD, ABA; Social Thinking by Michelle Garcia Winner M.S., CCC-SLP and The SCERTS Model, Patrick McGreevy PhD, BCBA. Claudia uses Sign Language to treat speech and language issues related to hearing impairment and she has training in fluency techniques - Preschool Fluency Training and Nina Reardon-Reeves M.S., CCC-SLP as well as augmentative communication techniques - PECS and Comprehensive Augmentative Communication Evaluations for Low-Tech and High-Tech Communication Devices. She is also trained in ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis).
Claudia believes the success of speech and language therapy includes the active participation and collaboration of parents so that skills learned in therapy can be worked at home and promote the child’s progress outside the therapy room. In her spare time Claudia enjoys music, traveling, crafts, exercise and spending time with her family and friends.
Alex J. loves having a good time at speech. Whether he’s movin’ or shakin’, there’s always a reason for a good PECS exchange!
