My passion is teaching parents and therapists. This website is filled with fun activities that anyone can use. Every idea I share has been lovingly practiced with my own children, students, and in my own clinic.
Both of my own children have special needs so I personally understand the challenges you face. Keep my books in your pocket, I’m here anytime you need me!
