Mrs. LaMontagne began her work with the Cyzner Institute

disabilities since 1994. She graduated from The George
Washington University with an MS in Infant Special
Education and began her early career working in Arlington,
Virginia public schools as a preschool coordinator.
This experience reinforced an already strong belief
that early intervention is critical to the development
of the special needs child. In her coordinator role,
she put into place early interventions including best
practice teaching methodologies and worked with assessment
and eligibility teams in order to provide preschool-age
children with the most appropriate means to access
and navigate their environments. She became well versed
with IDEA regulations and continues to be supportive
of both child and family rights as they pertain to
an appropriate and individualized education.
Mrs. LaMontagne is presently pursuing her Masterís
Certificate in Behavioral Intervention in Autism through
the University of Massachusetts so that she can become
a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
