Register for Career Spotlight: Sarah Burch – Autism Spectrum Disorder Consultant
Sarah graduated from York University in 2004 with a BA in Psychology. After toying with the idea of becoming a teacher, she ventured into the world of early intervention. Supporting children who experience an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) was a burgeoning field as the number of children receiving diagnoses was increasing. Sarah began her career by delivering Intensive Behavioural Intervention Therapy for a lead agency in Autism Services. Over her 16-year career, Sarah has experienced a myriad of changes in the delivery of funded Autism Services in the province. The impact of the changes led Sarah to earn her Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology and continue her career in supporting children and youth who experience ASD in a leadership capacity. When she isn’t wading through the research, Sarah enjoys skating with her daughter and taking a walk with an old friend.
