Sue’s Story

photo of Sue and her daughter, Monique Theriault“Completing my Master of Education in Special Education – Low Incidence Disabilities Concentration has been a tremendous source of pride for my family and me. In fact, my daughter received her Bachelor’s Degree from UMaine on the same weekend that I was hooded for my Master’s! The graduate program at UMaine is exceptional. The courses focus on research-based practices, which are crucial for educating individuals with disabilities. While completing my M.Ed., I was also able to complete the requirements for a Graduate Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders. The faculty are actively engaged in advancing the education and training of professionals who work with individuals with ASD and their families. I love how I can continue to be involved with these highly committed faculty through the Maine Autism Leadership Team and professional development workshops.”
