About Me

My name is Akiko and I teach children who have autism and other developmental disabilities.  I believe that I was born to help children and families who live with autism.  I love what I do and want to learn more about how I can help.  I hope this website will help others with the information I’ve learned and experiences I’ve had teaching children with autism. I also hope that other professionals as well as parents will share their knowledge and information so that I myself can learn more about how to help the children I teach everyday.

I am currently working toward my board certification to become a behavior analyst (BCBA).  I completed the coursework and am working on obtaining my 1500 hours of supervision (I have 500 hours left).  I am hoping to sit for the exam next fall.
