If your school or district is considering the need for an Asperger program that will assist student’s social development as well as help to train your staff to work with students diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome then contact Lannie Legler. Lannie has over thirty years experience working with adolescents with language/learning disabilities. In addition, her area of expertise has been in the social use of language (Pragmatics).
In 2000, Lannie became interested in Asperger Syndrome after the diagnoses of her son. Lannie began researching Aspergers Syndrome and sought to familiarize herself with the existing literature and theories on the subject. In 2001, the Wm. S. Hart Union High School District opened an Asperger classroom. In the spring of 2002, Lannie joined the Hart school district as a program developer with a specialization in a social skills program for students who have a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome. The program quickly evolved, and received recognition in 2005 for Program of the Year, from the California Speech & Hearing Association.
