Mrs. Gilmer from Palmdale CA is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Always Learning, Always Growing!

I need professional development books to expand my knowledge and expertise on topics such as ABA therapy, inclusion, and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support to support my students with speech and language challenges.

My Project

It's hard to believe I have been a school-based speech-language pathologist for 20 years! I absolutely love my students and I am constantly striving to stay current on new topics, therapy approaches, and techniques.

Please help me support my students with disabilities by expanding my professional development library!

Your donation will provide professional development books addressing current topics in special education, including ABA therapy for Autism, inclusive speech therapy practices, and my role in MTSS intervention. These materials will allow me to implement a variety of therapy approaches for my students facing the most persistent communication challenges.
