She and her husband were founding parents of Giant Steps, a school for children with autism in Fairfield, Connecticut.

An active member of the American Library Association, she has chaired the Library Services for Special Population Children and Their Caregivers Committee and served on the Schneider Family Book Award jury and the ALA Accessibility Assembly.Praise for Programming for Children and Teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder"I thoroughly enjoyed reading your book ... As you described various activities it brought back names of students that I had worked with who would have loved them. I used to be a Special Education teacher ... I can also envision using your suggested books as part of their classroom library to meet specific common core goals in literature."--Cathy Baker, Media Specialist, Danbury Connecticut Public Schools "I just finished reviewing your book and all I can say is ---wow! You really have done an outstanding job. I think you covered and explained everything really well. I learned some things and can't think of anything I would add. It was really encouraging to hear about some of the programs that have sprung up since I researched my first presentation [on this topic]. If I were back in a public library, I would begin trying out your ideas today!"--Heather Dieffenbach, Children's and Youth Services Consultant, Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives
