I have a profound interest in Milieu Communication Therapy, which aims at providing a means of communication for nonverbal or minimally verbal children. Furthermore, I enjoy collaborating on social skills curriculum and executive functions with professionals in other disciplines. Working in a team atmosphere is motivating for me. The dedication from the families that come into the Southfield Center is especially inspiring. Seeing the progress made after each session with a student fills me with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
