Danielle has been passionate about the development of all children and the roles parents and caregivers play in that development for over 20 years.
After completing her Master’s degree at Pepperdine University, Danielle developed and ran a pilot program out of New York City for young adults with various disabilities to be integrated into college. Building upon her previous training and years of experience with CARD (Center for Autism and Related Disorders), Danielle was able to build individual customised programmes to help each participant grow beyond the expectations of others.
Her experiences have confirmed her belief that all children, especially those with special needs, are capable of much more than many people give them credit for.
