Hello and Welcome to my website.

As a teacher, Board Certified Behavior Analyst, consultant, and--most important--mom, I know that having options and being able to make choices is as important for our kids as it is for us. Yes, so much has changed for the better in terms of timely, accurate diagnosis and effective intervention. Despite that, peer-reviewed studies back up what I hear from parents nearly every day: We still have a long way to go.

My goal in building this site is to offer parents, teachers, and others evidence-based, data-driven information you can really use to teach someone with an ASD like Asperger syndrome how to grow toward independence and fully realize his or her potential, whatever that may be.

Please check out the What's New column to your left. There I list new entries to the blog and the Tips and Advice page, and you will find links to my two ASD-related books: The OASIS Guide to Asperger Syndrome, cowritten with Barb Kirby, and my latest: The Parents' Guide to Teaching Kids with Asperger Syndrome and Similar ASDs Real-Life Skills for Independence. Then click over to the News page, and scroll down on your right to find my list of Highly Recommended resources, including The Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities at Stony Brook Children's Hospital, the workplace I'm proud to call home.

If you have a special topic you would like to see addressed or if you have a question, please get in touch (click the Contact tab above).

Thank you for reading,
