Michele Portlock is a mother of four children living in Parker, Colorado. She earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Brigham Young University and worked as an elementary school teacher for two years before taking an extended sabbatical to raise her family. Michele completed a master’s degree in special education with an emphasis in behavior therapy from Arizona State University where she developed skills which enable her to guide and educate parents as they raise their own neurodivergent child.
Michele has three neurodivergent children, and has spent countless hours researching and studying how to best provide necessary and adequate resources for her children. This learning sparked a desire in Michele to reach out and help other parents navigate the autism spectrum in a meaningful way for themselves, but particularly for the benefit of their children and family as a whole.
Michele specializes in educating parents about the various aspects of autism, particularly the traits that most define their own child's autism. She is well versed in sensory processing disorder (SPD), self regulation and co regulation, flexible thinking, and multiple other areas of the autism experience. Michele is here to guide parents toward best practices according to current research.
