What do you most enjoy about your job at Little Star Center? Getting an opportunity to be a part of the growth of the children every day and to be able to see the evidence of ABA therapy and its effectiveness.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?  If they can’t learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn.

One thing I want people to know and understand about working with children affected by autism is….working with one child who has autism is working with one child who has autism.  No two individuals with autism are the same.

What are your favorite activities when not working at Little Star Center?  I love following my sports teams from Michigan and going to concerts.  I also love traveling to see my family in Michigan and Tennessee.

A medical team from the Ukraine recently visited Little Star Center Lafayette West for a tour and to discuss methods to diagnose and treat children with autism. The six-member team spent the week in Lafayette as part of an education tour sponsored by the Lafayette Rotary Club.

While at Little Star Center Lafayette West, the team also observed therapists working with learners and shared ideas with the clinical team. The team was impressed with the resources and methods available to learners. Although the team is back in the Ukraine, they will stay in touch with the clinical team at Little Star Center Lafayette West to continue sharing ideas.
