I am trained by the Federation for Children with Special Needs, serve on the SPaN Board of Directors, and serve as a special education surrogate parent for children in state custody. I have helped create IEP and 504 plans for children with ASD (high- and low-functioning), PTSD, complex trauma, ADHD, NVLD, learning disabilities, behavioral issues, and medical needs. When appropriate, I have secured out-of-district 45-day assessments and placements to ensure the child's progress. I focus on the child's best interests and strive to leave the parent-school relationship in good shape.
