I am a school psychologist who uses innovative technology with young people, including those who have multiple special needs, including severe autism.
I returned to school in 2003 to take computer and related tech. courses part-time, but put my studies on hold in 2008 to return to my present position full-time. I experiment with emerging technologies during my "free" time, and enjoy sharing information about innovative applications and technologies on my blog.
