Caitlyn is passionate in teaching children, especially toddlers, emotional regulation, frustration tolerance, and appropriate social/communication skills. She believes every caregiver can learn how to be the place of calm for their child and provide their child with the necessary skills to handle challenging emotions, even through the most difficult of tantrums. She is passionate about helping to give the caregivers the tools they need, as well as providing toddlers with appropriate coping strategies to help develop a stronger connection and positive relationship within the family unit and with others. Caitlyn loves being creative with intervention strategies and finding playful ways for children to appropriately engage in everyday routines and meet treatment goals. Caitlyn is fluent in sign language and has used sign language with her 2 daughters starting at age 6 months. She loves using sign language in early intervention and providing children with a functional way to request their wants and needs.
It is hard for Caitlyn to narrow down her favorite toys. However, she likes role play toys (i.e. kitchen toys) and dolls. These toys provide many opportunities for children to develop and practice social skills, emotions, imitation, and communication. Also, playing with these toys often create opportunities for them to play with another person furthering social development, as well as encouraging creativity in the pretend play.
