Who Am I?
Professionally, I am a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner who has worked in the emergency room setting for over 6 years. Still, my most important and eventful role is being an autism mom.
My now seven year old son (the other member of the duo) was diagnosed with Autism at two and a half years old. He is a loving and active boy with a fascination for numbers. He is also a basketball genius. His challenges are mostly receptive and expressive language.
Being a single parent is no easy task; yet alone, being a single parent of a child with autism. However, from years of experience with autism associated symptoms and autism cost, I have become a parent-autism-specialist (PAS)- a term I’ve coined for awesome autism parents. As a PAS, my specific role is to teach my son, through tailored interventions, how to develop his uniqueness into functional strengths.
