Caroline Lee graduated from the Oldrey-Fleming School of Speech Therapy, London, England in 1968. Over her long career she worked with children in public health, school boards and private practice. During seventeen years with the Renfrew County District School Board in Ontario, she carried out assessments and planned programming for students with a broad range of speech/language delays and developmental challenges including those with Down Syndrome, hearing loss, and on the autism spectrum. While supervising the implementation of programming through support personnel she felt the need of a book that could be referenced by those providing programming. Following retirement from practice, Caroline wrote the book that she wished she had had on her desk all along! Caroline lives in Deep River, Ontario, and enjoys walking, kayaking, reading and exploring fibre art.
