Julie K. Pennell

Early Childhood Specialist

Julie K. Pennell

Advanced Level Certified DIR®/Floortime® Practitioner

I've been working with young children for over 20 years.  While earning my bachelor's degree in Child Development at California State University - Northridge, I worked as an Inclusion Assistant at the University Child and Family Study Center and trained at the University Early Intervention Program. I've also done graduate work at the University of Texas - Austin in Early Childhood Special Education.


Professionally, I've enjoyed working in a variety of different settings from early intervention to preschools and kindergarten.  I am particularly interested in supporting children as they develop social-communication, self-regulation, and play skills.​ I am an approved provider for the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services Autism Waiver Program and a Certified Advanced Level Practitioner of the DIR®/ Floortime™ approach.
