Graduate Continues to Serve the Community (TX UCEDD)

February 5, 2016

My name is Margot Boles and I graduated from Texas A&M University in December with my PhD in Educational Psychology. My experiences at Texas A&M, with the Center on Disability and Development, were priceless. I worked with the PATHS program and it opened my eyes to the needs of individuals with disabilities who are pursuing postsecondary education and careers. I had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of individuals and help create a pathway of independence and success for their futures.

These experiences have shaped me and provided me with the tools to pursue my purpose of promoting independence and successful employment for individuals with a variety of disabilities. I recently helped open and now run an autism clinic with Easter Seals East Texas in Texarkana. We work with individuals of all ages with autism spectrum disorders and create an environment that promotes acquisition of socially valid goals driven by our clients.
