This website was designed to help provide information, resources, and support to families affected by autism.
I specialize in In-Home ABA programs for children with Autism and other related disorders. I work with young children and their families seeking early intensive behavioral intervention based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.
I am committed to constructing positive, individualized, and data-driven treatment programs that are founded on the child's personal motivations and assets using the principles of ABA and empirically supported interventions.
Because the success of any intervention program is based on its ability to be generalized into the natural environment, I place particular emphasis on parent involvement. Parents are often the predictor of their child’s outcome. Parent training is included as part of each intensive home-based program, but parent training may also be accessed as an independent service using a consultative model. Parent training generally includes training in ABA theory and practical application, including how to teach new skills and address problem behaviors. Recommended interventions and short-term goals are also given, with support and feedback for achieving each family's goals.
I also believe that biomedical interventions and following a diet such as the GAPS diet, which focuses on healing the digestive tract, can help an autistic child feel better. The more comfortable a child is the more receptive the child becomes to learning (not to mention the potential positive impact in the child’s overall health, demeanor, and possible reduction in negative behaviors). Children who have both issues (ABA and Biomedical/Dietary) addressed at the same time do better than children who do not.
My ultimate goal is to assist each family with building a productive future for their child.
