Debra has considerable experience tailoring strategies and programs for skill development in the areas of language acquisition, functional communication, pre-academics, social skills, and self-regulation. As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Debra is well versed in the principals of ABA and evidence-based practices such as discrete trial training, picture exchange communication systems, pivotal response training, and functional behavior assessment. Debra has worked with students across the Autism spectrum and has provided training, supervision, and collaboration with multi-disciplinary teams including paraprofessionals, special and general education teachers, speech and language pathologists, and occupational therapists. Debra also holds a Masters Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling. She recognizes the essential role parents play in human development and she supports parents as their children's first teachers. Debra seeks to empower parents to confidently, compassionately, and effectively shape their children's behavior so that each child may fully develop his or her unique abilities and be able to share their gifts with the greater community.
