As a parent of a son with Asperger’s, she shows others how it is possible to overcome obstacles and achieve your goals. I present workshops on special needs… specialty is Autism spectrum disorder and Aspergers syndrome. I have presented for management teams, parents, and educators The emphasis is on educating, trouble shooting, resolution and creating a positive learning environment for the company, client, family, and society at large.

I present at workshops and public speaking from two different perspectives. I speak to parents groups regarding my personal experiences raising a son to adulthood  with who happens to have Aspergers and A.D.D. and provide advice thus helping them accept, comprehend inspire and ultimately empower parentswith the tools to help their child flourish. .I draw on my experience having brought up a special needs son diagnosed with Aspergers and ADD to adulthood and my professional and educational background as well.

I have been interviewed on radio broadcasts and podcast.

I work with Non Profits, schools, and society at large as well. I conduct public speaking engagements that provide them with the tools and knowledge to help special needs children, (predominantly autism and Aspergers ( with my specialty being Aspergers Syndrome) to become as independent and successful as possible.

I have presented autism workshops to staff, management teams, and parent groups. I offer tips on curriculum development and behaviour modification within the classroom and through in-services. I am certified by the Department of Early Childhood Education as a lead preschool teacher, an infant and toddler teacher, and site coordinator qualified to manage school age programs. I have recently ventured into public speaking engagements to educate both parents and educators on autism and Aspergers Syndrome
I want my experiences and challenges to be used productively as a learning tool for other parents and for educators as well. When my son was diagnosed with Asperger’s a decade ago it was a foreign word among many parents and professionals alike. I fought for help never giving up. Through my books I wish to help parents feel like they do not walk in the dark, that they are not alone, empower them and that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I also want to educate society at large on the topic of the autism spectrum. I believe all parties involved need to work as a collaborative team in order to insure a special needs child’s success.

  1. Dear Mari… I am wondering if you have contact with anyone doing research about the use of thermal therapy for individuals with autism & on the spectrum. This involves light to deep slow rhythmic compressions through heat, specific sequences which affect the nervous system, and from what I understand, will increase the oxytocin levels. Now that oxytocin levels can be obtained from simple lab work rather than lumbar puncture / CSF, it seems as it is time to explore. Just need contact person who can do this and the research. Here is a link from long ago in simply using the products we manufacture… but the application of the techniques is what really makes a difference.
