Learn to Add New  Tools to Your IEP Toolbox!

I founded my boutique educational consulting firm, Socially Speaking LLC, in 2010. My goal is to provide a public service, based upon a unique product. I provide professional development that's educational AND entertaining! I also provide school based pediatric speech therapy and ed-tech consulting, with an emphasis on Autism intervention in the iEra and iPad® integration into IEP goals. View my complete profile on LinkedIn

My Socially Speaking® Program i.e. Social Communication Curriculum, is primarily designed for young preschool/early elementary school children with special needs, particularly Autism. It is based upon the premise that improving orientation to person/place/time through fostering behavior and play,  helps facilitate better social communication overall. My mission is to empower special educators and parents with a simple message: learn to bridge the gap between a special child's readiness to learn and actual performance.
