All of the projects on this page are inspired by my experiences as a teacher and instructional coach in K-12 classrooms. 


Occupational Therapists who work with students with ASD often use an evidence-based instructional strategy called Community-Based Instruction to help students develop functional independence as they approach the transition into adulthood.

Evidence shows that the best way to help students develop skills to become more independent is to take them out of the classroom into the real world,  to practice in the natural settings where a skill is ultimately expected to be demonstrated.
