Elizabeth Mitchell is a member of the Training Institute faculty with the Geneva Centre for Autism. She has worked in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders for 30 years. Elizabeth has a wide range of experiences in working with families and people with ASD. She has worked with adults in a hard to serve group home, children and adolescents in a parent relief program, and at camps. Elizabeth was one of the founding members of the Autism Team in the Dufferin Peel Catholic District school board where she spent the last 18 years.
Elizabeth enjoys, and has worked extensively in the area of staff development and training which allows her to share her passion (some would say “topic of interest”) with others. She hopes that by sharing her experiences in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders, others will be inspired to become a voice for people on the spectrum.
