Description

Class Experience

I am autistic and have spent the last 10 years of my life working with autistic children as well as children with others.  disabilities in various capacities. I have been a pre-school teacher, a teacher's aid working one on one and in small groups with children who need extra help, a tutor, an in-home caregiver for a child with severe disabilities, and a community support worker for autistic tweens and teens. I also have an associate's degree in special education. 

In January 2020 I began leading social groups for autistic children on Outschool and now have many different age groups and options ranging from ages 3 to 18. I also teach several classes about autism and sensory issues all of which have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from parents and students alike. I have spent a lot of time learning about autism and how autistic tend to view the issues that will be discussed in this class. If you have any questions or concerns about my qualifications please message me or read the reviews of some of my others classes about autism. 

Additionally, I am an advocate in my community, and work to make the world more accessible to everyone whenever I can. This currently includes working in my church to make our kids and youth programs possible and educating medical professionals on autism when needed. In the past, it has included going to IEPs with families I know and even advocating for access to more health services at an adorable cost for students at the college I was attending at the time.
