Interest in developmental disabilities My area of interest is Autism Spectrum Disorders. I  believe in getting necessary supports to children as soon as possible, which is aided by early detection. I also find myself drawn to focus largely on the transition aged youth. I  want to help them to be successful as they grow into adults. I  would like to see them have as many resources available to them as they need to succeed in their chosen endeavors.
Experience in developmental disabilities Experience in developmental disabilities: I have been surrounded by various forms of developmental disabilities my entire life. I have worked with students, families, and educators to create successful life strategies for students on the Autism Spectrum. I am a Partners in Policymaking graduate and a member of the Special Education Advisory Panel at the Department of Education.
Anything else about yourself I'm a mom of three amazing children, one on the Autism Spectrum. I love being outdoors and taking family time as often as I can.
