For reluctant writers, introduce novel or unexpected materials and supports. Try old typewriters, novelty or colored pencils, voice-activated software or story starters.

This website is dedicated to promoting inclusive schooling and exploring positive ways of supporting students with autism and other disabilities. Most of my work involves collaborating with schools to create environments, lessons, and experiences that are inclusive, respectful, and accessible for all learners.


Patrick and Pedro

My dear friend and co-author, Dr. Patrick Schwarz, recently taped this quick interview about our books, “Just Give Him the Whale” and “Pedro’s Whale”.

I love this little segment because a) I love Patrick’s passion for this subject, b) I always love hearing “the Pedro story”, and c) I am so glad he is reaching people with his positive message of working with people and their fascinations instead of on people and their obsessions.

Bravo, Dr. Schwarz. Two thumbs up for this wonderful performance!
