I was the Program Director of Social Services, Training Coordinator and Special Camp Fair Coordinator for Resources for Children with Special Needs, Inc. for over 24 years. Now I have transitioned to the role of consultant/trainer on a private basis. Prior to RCSN, I was the Special Needs Coordinator for the Brooklyn Children’s Museum for 10 years, a multi-sensory interactive learning environment. I began my career working with children with and without disabilities as a Head Start teacher for 5 years. My passion is and has always been bringing relief to families of children with disabilities as well as to the professionals who support them. My workshops are informational and inspirational. Through an interactive format, participants are taken on a journey of discovery. They will learn about all the various programs and services that make life easier when caring for a child with a disability and be motivated to think about their needs, wants, wishes and dreams and how to move toward the realization of those dreams and wishes.
I offer interactive and enjoyable workshops that provide both information and inspiration to parents, caregivers and professionals. Participants leave with a feeling of hope, knowing that there are options out there to meet their needs, wants, wishes and dreams.
I am also a published poet. Please feel free to "Google" Gary Shulman poetry to discover many of my works. Enjoy!
