Cindy Coady MA. RDT.
Drama therapist / Teacher / Special Needs Consultant
Private Practice / CSMB
Providing clinical services for professionals and parents of children with special needs.
I am passionate about the child-parent relationship as the cornerstone for our potential. I love empowering parents through education, embodiment, and play to envision and work towards the best quality of life for their children. What separates me from others in my field Is that as a child I was diagnosed with a learning disability. This, in conjunction with my education and experience in the field, has shaped my understanding and vision for what is important and needed in working with children and their families
Over the last 20 years, I have worked with children and families in a variety of roles.

Cindy has been a positive source of help and information while navigating parenthood with a child on the autism spectrum. She has provided many tips that are easily integrated into everyday life and has been supportive and put things in perspective especially when we feel like we are failing miserably at our role as parents. After our first session with Cindy, we felt like everything will be okay, it might not be always be easy but it will be okay.

My son was diagnosed with ASD around 4 years ago and started to see Cindy for assistance almost immediately. Over the past few years, I have learned and followed many of her suggestions. It has worked for my son that is the reason I still seek her services and advice on a regular basis. She is a phone call away if I need anything and I don't know how to deal with a situation that my son reacted or said. I would strongly suggest having her services when dealing with ASD that come with anxieties and sensitivity issues.
