Professional Support – Allyson McIntosh
I have been working in Special Education for 12 years. I started out providing speech therapy in a private practice, then to the school districts, which is much more rewarding. During this time I went back to school and received my masters in special education with a certification as an educational diagnostician. I enjoy testing and assisting teachers with implementing academic intervention in the classroom to keep kiddos progressing. I enjoy being hands on and consulting with staff to make the best, most appropriate decisions to support students and I am so happy the staff like my support as well!
