Hello, and thank you for visiting. My name is Elizabeth Cambier. I educate and coach children with special needs, and help transitional teens / young adults who are working on independent living skills. My primary focus is on enhancing skills through the use of iOS devices, including the iPad, iPhone, and iPad. If you are a parent, teacher or care provider of a child with special communication needs, you may be amazed by the power and flexibility of modern mobile devices as tools to aid communication, learning, and independence.
As an educator and consultant, I was an early adopter of iOS devices for therapeutic purposes. I have worked with individuals, local organizations, and school districts, and have had tremendous success introducing mobile devices and apps to children and teens / young adults, as well as their parents, educators, and therapists. Numerous apps now exist to help kids to communicate, learn, and achieve independence. What’s more, the “coolness” factor of mobile devices can help make it easier for kids to socialize within their peer groups.
This new world of devices and apps evolves rapidly, with new assistive apps coming along almost daily. I have created this website to help get you started navigating it. If you find this information to be of use and would like to learn more about me and how I might serve you and your child, please contact me (elizabeth null@null interactivetherapywa NULL.com) to open a conversation. I am available to offer my help and insight to you in getting your child learning, communicating, and achieving their independence with the help of their iOS devices.
My process for helping families configure mobile devices for their children starts with an interview. First, I would meet with you to learn about your child and understand their unique circumstances, followed by a little show and tell. I can help you customize your device settings and apps to fit the needs of your child, and get them started with a carefully chosen set of apps.
All of my services begin with me getting to know you and your child, and your child’s unique temperament and educational needs. When I work one-on-one with your child, my goal is to provide nurturing, safe care while expanding and challenging his or her development. All of our activities together are designed to facilitate your child’s social, motor, and cognitive growth while providing support and clear goals for them. If your child is a teen or young adult transitioning into independence, I can help you foster independence and confidence through one-on-one work, community chaperoning, and job site assistance.
I was inspired at a young age by my time as a volunteer at a child development center in my hometown. Since 1993, I have studied and worked with children of special needs in a variety of roles. I am committed to creating opportunities for growth in a safe, nurturing environment.
