Stephanie Clapes, M.Ed., is a Learning Specialist and Educational Consultant, who received her Master's degree in Early Childhood Special Education from the College of New Rochelle, and her BA from Barnard College. She currently works as a Learning Specialist in a private, international school in New York, and as a private consultant for international families with children with learning difficulties. She has specialized in working with children with autism as well as in working with gifted students with learning difficulties, and has worked with students with language, sensory and auditory processing disorders in Westchester, NY, as well as throughout the South Bronx.
Her main interest has been the intersection between academic learning and the developmental stages of the child, and she views Peace Literacy as a powerful tool to bridge the gap between these two important needs. Her focus is on bringing Peace Literacy to the elementary classroom and she has worked with Chappell on a number of Peace Literacy Curricular Units for elementary students, including the Garden of Strong Community, available on our Curriculum page.
