We are Practitioners in Training, who have a huge passion for this field. We both enjoy teaching and helping others, and feel proud when our clients achieve steps towards their goals. Lindsay is currently a program supervisor and DSP at The GRACE Foundation of New York (a nonprofit organization that provides services for children, teens, and young adults with autism), and has been part of this organization for 10 years now. Kim was part of The GRACE Foundation of New York for 6 years as a program assistant and a Day Habilitation assistant. Entering the world of S2C has been life changing for us. The moment we learned about it, we were fascinated and knew immediately that this is what we wanted to be part of for the rest of our lives. We are excited to spread the word about S2C and help change the lives of non speakers.
