Employment Experience
In 2009, I became a Behavior Consultant working under the supervision of Karen Kester, MA, BCBA (Linking Autism and Families, Vancouver, B.C.).

It is my responsibility to:
(a) design, implement and monitor early intervention programs for preschool children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder(ASD);
(b) supervise, train, and support Behavior Interventionists in home, school, and community settings;
(c) collaborate with family members, professionals, and paraprofessionals.

From 2005-2010 I worked as a Behavior Interventionist supporting children with ASD ranging in age from 2 years to 11 years. I worked under the supervision of several agencies, including:
(a) The Behaviour Institute;
(b) DiTommaso Consulting;
(c) Linking Autism and Families.
Philosophy and Approach to Working with Individuals and Families with Autism
LAAF’s approach to supporting children with ASD is based on current best practices in autism research and intervention, which includes a family centred approach that focuses on identifying each child's individual strengths and needs and building on skills and abilities in a positive and supportive manner. Guided by the teachings of Verbal Behavior and Pivotal Response Training, LAAF aims to enhance a child’s development and functional use of age appropriate skills.

Each program is individually developed to meet the unique needs of each child and his or her family. Beginning with a comprehensive assessment using the Basic Language and Learning Skills-Revised (ABLLS-R) and Functional Behavior Assessment, an intervention plan is developed. Initial and on-going training is provided for family members and Behavioral Interventionists to competently implement a child’s intervention plan and monitor the effectiveness of intervention. On-going in-person consultation is provided to promote a child’s progress and assist her or him to use new skills and knowledge on a daily basis at home, at school, and in the community-at-large.
We also collaborate with other individuals who support the child and family, and advocate for a child’s full inclusion as an active member of his or her community.
