Behavior Analyst (BCBA) & Learning Support Specialist
Hi, I am Kristin! My educational background is in Special Education, Educational Leadership, and Applied Behavior Analysis. I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, licensed special education teacher, and Orton-Gillingham trained at the associate level. I have a graduate certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis from Webster University, a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from St. Mary's University, and a Master of Education from the University of Minnesota.
In 2010, I moved to Zagreb, Croatia after working in a Minnesota public school for eight years. Since 2010, I have worked at international schools in Croatia and Switzerland as a learning support teacher, Literacy Coach, and Student Support Services Coordinator. My international experience, working with preschool through Grade 12 students and teachers, has afforded me the opportunity to create collaborative networks with schools, parents, students, and the local community.
As a behavior analyst and learning support specialist, I develop trusting relationships to create a student centered learning environment, whether that is in-person or working online. My approach and plans are individualized to meet the specific needs of neurodiverse children and adolescents.
Students are encouraged to be active participants in developing and assessing their learning goals while being taught how to self-advocate for their needs in and out of the classroom.
In addition to working with students, I coach parents and teachers in order to best support the needs of children and adolescents in the classroom and at home. I specialize in Specific Learning Disabilities,
social/emotional/behavioral learning, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, school based interventions, and Individual Learning Plan (ILP) goals.
I am from the USA and speak English.
