My son's friend created this video as a potential viral video concerning oil. His grade is dependent on how many people view the video. It is short and packed full of info. Can you take a moment to view? Thanks

Why do I constantly get people from Russia adding me to their circles? I am sure it has got to be a scam. Anyone else get this?

Be present when life falls apart - Pema Chodron
Introduction

I recently graduated from Portland State University majoring in Psychology and a Ronald E. McNair Scholar. My interest in Pervasive Developmental Disorders has stemmed from my own personal experience with Asperger’s Syndrome as well as having two wonderful young boys who are also diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.  That interest has been fostered at Portland State University through my interaction with other faculty along my academic path as well as my work within the Autism Community. 

In my undergraduate experience I have been privileged to work with many people within the Autistic community.  I have worked as a lab assistant with Dr. Katie McDonald, a community psychologist and co-investigator with the Academic Autism Spectrum Partnership in Research and Education.  I have worked as a research assistant with Dr. Christina Nicolaidas from Oregon Health and Sciences University on A.A.S.P.I.R.E.   I also recently worked under the tutelage of Dr. Thomas Kindermann in his lab as an undergraduate research assistant and as his mentee, where I was priviliged to work on a long term research project seeking to find the relationships between student engagement and student social constructs.

My academic goal is to achieve my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Counseling and General counseling.  I hope to utilize my degree to work with families with Pervasive Developmental Disorders and other disabilities.

I recently was recently working as an intern and volunteer with the Autistic Self Advocacy Network - Portland Chapter and am now an active member.  I just relinquished my position as technical advisor to the current chapter president.  I was recently connected as a volunteer mediator for Portland Parent Union in their Restorative Listening and Healing project as well as a volunteer intern.  

I am currently a Person Centered Planning Facilitator trained by the Oregon Council on Disabilities as well as a passionate advocate for children who experience disabilities.  I help parents and children advocate for their rights during the IEP process as well as help to speak for and represent the child in those meetings. I position myself to be sure that the child is heard both figuratively and in reality throughout the meeting by all adults present.

Bragging rights
I am a Person Centered Planning Facilitator for hire as well as an advocate and resource for the Individualized Education Process for children. I love my work and would love to share what I do with you.
