Lindsay Morin

education advocate

Lindsay Morin, Ph.D., Special Education (ABD)

Since 2003, Lindsay has worked as a educator, advocate and educational consultant, assisting students, families and outside agencies to identify and support their specific needs. She has experience and knowledge supporting children with various needs, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, learning differences, TBI, Pervasive Developmental disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, physical disabilities and various behavioral issues. Lindsay has completed her coursework and comprehensive exams for a doctoral degree in Special Education at Michigan State University with a concentration in Autism Spectrum Disorder, and is currently working on her dissertation to complete the program. 

Lindsay worked as an intensive learning center and resource teacher in elementary, middle and high school supporting students with mild to severe disabilities. She provided support and instruction to students in one-to-one and group settings, and in general education classrooms. She also worked as a behavior specialist, providing support for parents and staff for behavioral interventions. She also teaches graduate-level courses in Applied Behavior Analysis for current teachers.  

As an educational consultant, Lindsay assists with implementation of programs in homes, schools and camps. She coordinates with parents/guardians, school and camp personnel and outside agencies. Inclusion support is also a top priority. 

Lindsay is uniquely qualified as an advocate due to her years of experience working with families with a wide range of educational needs. She works with families during all stages, from diagnosis and early intervention, to school-aged children and those transitioning to independent living. She understands the importance of helping families understand the educational process and her experiences provides a specialized understanding of the school dynamics. Her experience includes attending IEP meetings, conferences, meditations, and progress meetings, advocating for placement changes, developing programs to accommodate student needs, developed IEP and ESY programs, and created social skill programs for students with social communicative needs.
