Hi, I’m Heather Roach, an educational consultant who is passionate about helping others. I am known for my creative and outside-the-box thinking, always looking for new ways to support and engage students. As a resourceful consultant, I work closely with other educators and therapists to develop curriculum and provide additional support to teachers, schools, and other families. I am deeply committed to helping therapists, parents, and teachers, using multiple strategies to ensure everyone is supported and included. One of my favorite tools is Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), which I find both enjoyable and exciting to work with. Whether it’s using eye gaze technology or other innovative approaches, I am always finding new ways to connect with and empower students. My experience as a former educator and mom has provided me with a unique perspective and a wealth of knowledge that I use to help schools and organizations create positive and effective learning environments.
