Writer, special education advocate, and Asperger coach.
I write the monthly column, ‘Inclusion Matters’ for The Jewish Advocate. I have published blog posts on the Friendship Circle, Jewish Boston, and Parent Professional Advocacy League websites. I provide consulting and advocacy concerning special education, autism, mental health, and transition services for parents of children ages toddler to adulthood. I work as a life coach for individuals who have Asperger traits, providing mentoring in interpersonal and employment skills.
I graduated from Barnard College, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, passed bar exams in PA, MA, and Israel, and practiced law in Israel. I completed a master’s degree in child development at Wheelock College and I worked at Children’s Hospital and Dimock as an early intervention provider. I’m an experienced family mediator. I learned about Autism Spectrum Disorder and mental illness through continuing education programs. I’m bilingual: English-Hebrew.
