Thanks for visiting!
From 1985 until the spring of 2011, I was a faculty-researcher at the University of New Hampshire's Institute on Disability focusing on inclusive education for students with autism, intellectual, and other developmental disabilities. I'm now in semi-retirement and able to focus on the work about which I am most passionate. That includes student-specific consultation, team professional development, school-wide systems change, policy advocacy, and writing. I particularly like working with students with Down syndrome and their educational teams.
I hope that this website will serve as a resource for engaging me to work with you -- families, educators, and others who are interested in supporting students with significant disabilities so that they may enjoy satisfying social relationships, be welcomed members and full participants in general education classrooms, and be college and career ready by the time they graduate. Don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions.
I hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to my website. There's much more to come!
