Background:
Sue has thirteen combined years experience working in K-12 special education and a higher education locale. She graduated in June of 2015 from Nazareth College's Higher Education Student Affairs Administration (HESSA) master’s degree program. Sue also received a Certificate of Specialization from the Interdisciplinary Specialty Program in Autism (I-SPAN) from Nazareth. The I-Span program is a graduate-level program that prepares professionals to work with individuals on the autism spectrum across the lifespan. As a course requirement for the I-Span capstone, Sue designed an Autism Workshop as a way to address specific learning needs of students with autism who have the academic ability to succeed in college yet face significant barriers in their social and organizational skills to meet the demands and expectations of a college classroom . Sue is committed to providing equal access to programs, services and classroom accommodations to students with disabilities.
