"Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
- Benjamin Franklin
Ronni Okraski and son.
I have been working in the field of special education since 1995 with a primary focus in applied behavior analysis, positive behavior supports, inclusive education, autism spectrum disorders, problem behaviors and family advocacy.
My Past Work Experiences
Lecturer/Instructor for graduate programs at Arizona State University and Northern Arizona University.
Consultant and Supervisor for the HOPE Group in Arizona.
Special Education Teacher for Washoe County School District in Reno, Nevada and Scottsdale Unified School District in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Aside from my experience in the field, I also have the privilege of raising my own child who has cognitive, behavioral, physical and medical needs. This privilege has provided me with more education than the above experiences combined and gives me a unique insight into the field.
