Chelsea’s experiences in the elementary school setting have focused on building communication skills and access to the curriculum of both monolingual and bilingual verbal and non-verbal children on the autism spectrum as well as those with developmental disabilities and learning disabilities through receptive/expressive language (i.e., following directions, increasing utterance length, identifying and labeling nouns/actions, describing, grammar, etc), reading comprehension (vocabulary, inferencing, sequencing, identifying main idea/supporting details, story grammar elements, etc.) and building social skills.
