I graduated from the University of Massachusetts- Lowell. My major was psychology with a minor in disability studies. I worked as a behavior therapist in home and school settings for the last 4 years with children ages 1-22 years with autism. I have worked at a preschool over the summer with special needs. I also worked at a drama camp where I was the assistant to help two girls with special needs. One had autism and the other girl had down syndrome. One girl was in high school and the other girl was in middle school. I also, am currently working with a child with autism that I take out into the community. I also, am working in a group home where the children have dealt with trauma in some way and they have difficulty with their behavior.
