She also uses techniques tailored to her clients’ needs and meets clients where they are to assist them in meeting their own expressive and creative goals. Sarah will be working closely with the Special Needs Service Team’s Behavioral Analyst, Chami, as well as the therapeutic art educator, Robin to serve her clients, utilizing their expertise.
