Donnella Rodriguez, MS, CCC-SLP-APP is a Speech-Language Pathologist working in Trinidad & Tobago, where she was born and raised. She graduated from Nova Southeastern University, FL in 2005, and has been practicing ever since. She founded and is a Director of Right Start Early Intervention Program for Autism, a non-profit organization which supports autistic children in Early Intervention, from ages 18 months to 6 years of age. She cites ‘the kids being turned away from Preschools and parents having nowhere to turn’ as reasons for its inception. She was able to see the immediate effects of using ideas gained from Learn Play Thrive’s content and wants to continue to be empowered to empower her ASD clients through further learning.
