Putting the Pieces Together 
Serving the ASD Community since 1977

Home Page

Welcome to the Spectrum Services website!

Since 1977 I've have been passionate about teaching children and young adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)*,  aged 2-27, how to make sense of the world, to relax, have fun with others, become confident and realize their full potential. 

Over the years I acquired expertise in several teaching approaches from the early psycho-dynamic developmental model (a therapeutic, relationship-oriented method) through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Cognitive-Behavior methods.  I employed them along with the best practices and materials which I found most efficacious for my students. 

2017, 40 years after my first year as an autism teacher, I retired from teaching.  I now wish to use this site to share my vast library of tips, techniques and materials used and developed for every area- ADL, academics, sensory, behavior and social realms.

Enjoy exploring my site for detailed information and more!
