Making Sense of Autism
Susan Golubock, Autistic Retired OTR/L
My name is Susan and I am a retired occupational therapist living in Tempe, Arizona. I received my M.S. degree in Occupational Therapy from Western Michigan University in 1968 and my M.Ed. degree in special education technology in 1995. I was diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum in 1999. Most of my career has been spent in school-based practice. Frustrated with the pull-out medical model of providing OT services in the school setting, I developed and, with the support of my fellow therapists, administrators, parents and teachers at Loudoun County Public School system in Virginia, initiated an educationally relevant model of therapy services that worked with both the teacher and the student within the classroom setting.
Susan works with the Therapists at Baio Enterprises on a consulting basis. If you would like Susan to consult with your therapist, please reach out to Baio Enterprises or your therapist. She provides insight not only as an OT with years of experience but also as an autistic adult.
