Victoria has worked with children, youth, and adults with ASD, ADHD, ODD, and other exceptionalities for over ten years. After graduating from Algonquin College in 2009, Victoria spent several years working in residential treatment facilities before transitioning to Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. While there, Victoria undertook training in various interventions, including Applied Behavioural Analysis, Registered Behaviour Technician, Anxiety and Autism, and more before focusing on social skills.
Recognizing the need in Ottawa and beyond for accessible, effective social skills training for children and young people with exceptionalities, Victoria sought out training in those areas, including Zones of Regulation, Social Thinking, Collaborative Problem Solving, and PEERS (the Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills).
As a social skills educator, Victoria offers a pragmatic, and empathetic approach in helping children and young people meet their goals, tailoring assistance to the needs of the individual. She is flexible and proactive in problem solving, and provides a caring, experienced perspective for children, youth, and their families navigating the challenges of the social environment.
