About Nicole Caldwell, Ph.D.
I have been teaching children with autism for about 10 years, and I have loved every minute! Nothing makes my day more than seeing children becoming empowered by learning to communicate, enjoying learning activities customized to their interests, and discovering the joy of connecting with others.
I have worked in private schools, early intervention programs, home-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) programs, and with homeschooling families. I have also taught college courses for students studying to become special education teachers. I hold a Master's Degree and a Ph.D. in Special Education, with an emphasis on teaching students with autism.
