Activities And Strategies To Help You Better Teach A Child With Autism

Do you want to know how to improve learning? engagement? social skills? communication? relationships?

I can help you with that! Autism is not the same for every child. Gaining a better understanding of a child’s individual development can help you become the best Early Interventionist for that child whether you’re a parent, teacher, or therapist. Supporting and teaching a child with autism should be based on the child’s strengths and needs, not on a diagnosis.

I promise that you are making a difference!

Hi! My name is Joy, and I am thrilled that you are here. Whether you are a parent or an educator, I want you to know that you are making a difference in the lives of some very special kids.

I have always loved kids, and I feel so lucky to be working in a field that I love. 

I started working with people with developmental disabilities back in 1998 (wow, that makes me feel old!) I have worked with kids as young as 1 year old, and adults as old as 85.

When I began specializing in working with kids with autism in 2007, I realized this is where my passion is. I find the greatest joy in working with kids to build strong relationships with their families.

I earned a Master’s Degree in Education from Arizona State University, an Early Childhood Special Education Certification from Utah State University, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science and Health from the University of Utah. I am also a Certified P.L.A.Y. Project Consultant.
