Autism is a neurodevelopment disorder that brings about a range of challenges in social, repetitive behavior, speech, and non verbal communication. According to statistics, one out of every 68 children in the United States is struck with autism.
As an initiative to support and provide services to autism struck kids, Amelia Foxwell along with her colleagues started McArdle – a center for Early Autism Intervention. It is the first of its kind in the Mid Shore area. At the center, each child is evaluated according to his/her stage of autism. Their level of autism is rated and guidance is provided according to how much assistance they need. Amelia has more than 15 years of training experience of working with autistic children. She is a psychologist specializing in survivors of violence, torture and trauma.
Amelia Foxwell has obtained her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from University of South Florida, and Masters Degree in Applied Psychology from Sacred Heart University. Currently, she is a Doctoral Student in Research Psychology. She has worked with a number of firms since 1996. She worked as a Community Liaison at Deaf Referral Services, Project Manager at Epicurean Life, Advisor at Novus Investigations, Director at Veterans Landing Zone, ABA Therapist at V.B. and Instructor at Z7 Tactical.
