Sarah grew up in New York. She graduated with Phi Beta Kappa honors in 2008 from Lehigh University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. During her summers and school vacations, Sarah worked in special education classrooms for children with autism and other communication disorders. Sarah primarily worked in classrooms that employed TEACCH or ABA methods. Sarah attended graduate school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she graduated in 2010 with her Masters Degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences.
Sarah has clinical experience working with children and adults in a variety of settings, including home, daycare, clinic, public school, inpatient rehabilitation, and acute hospital care. She has a particular interest in early intervention. Sarah enjoys working with children and watching them progress, as she finds that helping a child gain access to communication can greatly improve his/her quality of life. Sarah also believes it is important to collaborate with family and caregivers to help maximize a child’s success outside of the therapy session.
