In addition to my general practice, I help address the needs of people with Asperger's Syndrome (AS). "Aspies" are high functioning, often gifted, individuals that may struggle with pervasive social, emotional, and cognitive challenges. Sometimes referred to as high-functioning autistics (HFA), Aspies respond positively to therapies that include the use of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
I am a professional member of the Asperger/Autism Network (AANE) with 10 years of working experience with high-functioning autistics. I also hold an Advanced Graduate Certification in Applied Behavior Analysis from Penn State University, leader in the field of ABA teaching and research.
