EARLY CHILDHOOD SPECIAL EDUCATOR & LEARNING SPECIALIST
Hi, I’m Emily. I’m a special education teacher who specializes in working with children with mild to severe learning and behavioral needs. Originally from California, I received my master’s degree in early intervention from the University of Oregon. I have spent most of my career focusing on interventions designed for children with autism, social-emotional difficulties, language delays, and behavioral challenges. I also work closely with families to enable them to support their children's needs in the home.
In 2018, I moved to Berlin, where I began working in the international school environment. My experience establishing a special educational needs department at Berlin Cosmopolitan School gave me keen insight into the advantages and challenges faced by students with learning diversities in an international school environment.
I specialize in: early childhood development and early intervention, social-emotional development, behavioral challenges, learning diversities in international schools, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), family coaching, and early math and literacy acquisition.
I’m from the United States and I speak English.
What Clients Say...
Emily's creativity and energy combined with her patience and deep empathy make her an extraordinary teacher and coach. She was able to quickly evaluate our son's math level, and provided much needed peace of mind to us as parents. Her creative approach to teach math - using experiments, small art projects and funny games make our son enjoy math, and look forward to every weekly session with Emily.
Emily is working with our family to support our six year old to strengthen his social-emotional skills and overcome challenges and fears he experiences at school. We value Emily's understanding and direct experience working with young children with extra support needs in the Berlin school setting. With the practical tools and strategies she has shared with us, we are seeing real progress and feeling more confident!
