A few words about me...
For the last ten years, Mary Ann Winter-Messiers has focused on professional development and research in special education, including Congenital Toxoplasmosis, Autism Spectrum Disorder, pediatric immunology, early intervention therapies, applied behavior analysis and emotional/social deficits, receptive language acquisition, and “twice exceptional” or gifted children with special needs. As a parent of a child with ASD, Winter-Messiers interprets for students not only the role of the teacher of children with ASD, but also the unique ASD interactions of family, child, home, and school.
Ms. Winter-Messiers has presented the intimate face of ASD to groups and university classes and writes articles on special needs parenting. In addition, as previous coordinator of Continuing Licensure in the College of Education, she has expertise in Oregon educator licensure requirements, standards, and law.
