for students who are blind or visually impaired

I am a speech language pathologist who has special interest and experience in relationship-based programming for students who have visual and multiple impairments, including autism and deaf-blindness.  I work in public schools and private practice, where my students never stop giving me new insights and fresh perspectives on their learning. I have authored two curriculum guides, both published through Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, and enjoy sharing  my work (and play) with others through workshops and writing.
