Linda Herreshoff, M.A., has over 35 years of total teaching experience, and over 15 years of serving primarily autism spectrum-related students as the head of the Social Cognitive Classroom at Jordan Middle School, a part of Palo Alto Unified School District. As for the "Plus" in Spectrum Tutoring Plus, it's really a double plus: first, Linda offers her services to students and young adults on the autism spectrum *plus* others with academic, executive functioning, or social challenges; second, she offers academic tutoring *plus* skillful, hands-on, heartfelt support in crucial non-academic areas as well.
Linda's special affinity for treating each child with kindness, dignity, and a wide range of up-to-date service modalities has enabled her to reach many children — both in terms of their academics and their personal or social functioning — who had previously felt overwhelmed, marginalized, or even hopeless. Just as importantly, Linda often provides substantial support for the *families* of the children she works with, giving parents insight and real-time advice as to what will best serve their children.
