Rebecca is currently an autism consultant/trainer for several school districts in Pennsylvania, USA, and serves as President of the AVID Learning Center, a therapeutic center for children with disabilities located in New Kensington. Rebecca has published three books.

The second book, Addressing Challenging Behaviors in the Classroom—A Guide for Teachers and Parents of Children with High-Functioning Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome, helps teachers discover the reasons for problem behaviors and ways to create positive supports in the classroom to help prevent such behavior. Rebecca’s third book, I Need Help With School!—A Guide for Parents of Children with High-Functioning Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome, provides information to help parents to understand the special education laws as they relate to their child’s disability.
