Crossroads
School
“Over the last five years I
have had the pleasure of
seeing Crossroads School
develop into a premier
setting for children on the
autism spectrum.
I am honored to have
contributed to that
achievement through
regular staff training and
ongoing consultation with
parents and faculty via
video conferencing.”
