A Note From Morgan Peterson
I have been working in the special education field for a little over 8 years now. After completing my Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Arizona I moved out to San Diego and began in the field of ABA. My passion for working with individuals with disabilities all began with my neighbor who was nonverbal. I was about 6 at the time when I started to realize him and I were different and I loved that about us. In high school I was a personal care assistant for a girl with Down Syndrome. In college I worked in a group home with 4 awesome individuals with autism of all different ages. I was also a part of a program called project focus which was a transition program for individuals with intellectual disabilities to have the opportunity to go to college for 2 years. During those 2 years I supported these individuals in courses, and internships as well as made sure they got the college experience like attending all of the sporting events. It is my goal to continue to grow everyday with my knowledge and experience to be able to provide the best care of my clients. I am so excited to be a part of this awesome team.
