Featured Events

During the 2017 November NAEYC Expo in Atlanta, Georgia I had the opportunity to present on Sensory Integration, "Tips, tools and Tidbits to over 200 educators and therapists.  The enthusiasm and passion displayed from the audience was amazing.  I enjoyed sharing my knowledge and experience to assist with understanding the impact on students with sensory processing challenges.  Sensory processing disorder has no cure, but with the appropriate intervention there are options for children and educators within the classroom!






During the 2015 Young Child Expo in New York, I had the pleasure of meeting keynote speaker, Temple Grandin! She is one of the world's most accomplished and well-known adults with Autism.  Her story and accomplishments are amazing. She gives hope to those individuals that are on the spectrum.  Her very own testimony speaks volume on Autism and it's impact on her life.


According to CDC, Autism affects 1 in 68 children (1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls) as having Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
