The purpose of this site is to share my personal and professional experiences related to autism and my company, TeachTown. I am a licensed psychologist and board certified behavior analyst who has been working with children with autism, parents, schools, and other professionals for over 10 years. I have also been conducting research studies in behavior analysis, focusing on innovative treatment approaches for children with autsim for about 10 years. I am very passionate about helping these children and those who work so hard to help them, which is my motivation for starting this blog. I am also a parent of a beautiful 3-year old boy and I reside in the bay area of San Francisco. To learn more about my professional background and about TeachTown, check out our website (www.teachtown.com)
I will try to post at least once per week, if you have suggestions for topics or discussions, please let me know. I will be posting on a number of topics related to autism including:
- TeachTown, a company that I started several years ago to create high-quality computer-assisted treatment options for people on the autism spectrum. Topics may include new products, the research we are doing, events that we have participated in, our staff and other exciting things going on at TeachTown.
- Information about the latest news and research on autism and my thoughts on them.
- Reviews of books, articles, and media that I have seen on autism.
- Information about events, books, media, or anything coming up related to autism that you might want to check out.
This is my first experience in writing an online journal (or “blog”) and I am very excited about having the opportunity to share my thoughts in this kind of format.
