Areas of Expertise:
Kathleen is a physical therapist; the parent of a non-verbal child with autism and founder of a therapy intensive respite program for persons with autism and their families (Kris’ Camp/Therapy Intensive Programs – TIP). I received my doctorate in rehabilitation science in 2013. My clinical and research focus is integrating autobiographical accounts of persons with autism; the cumulative clinical expertise of therapists working at TIP; and recent research on motor learning, brain connectivity differences, and praxis in persons with autism. Beyond my autism work, I have extensive experience (36 years) in pediatrics in school and clinic environments.
My passion:
“To understand the sensory and movement differences that are unique to persons with autism, then teaching clinicians and educators how to use this approach. Kathleen is working on a website www.accessingautism.org in order to share her expertise with educators, families and therapists.”
Fun Fact:
“Kathleen is a huge dog fan. Her most recent dog friend is a Bernedoodle named Phoebe. Phoebe is in training to become a therapy dog.”
