Marlou de Vera, M.Ed. – Autism Specialist

Buncombe County Schools Asheville, NC


Marlou is an autism specialist with 28 years’ experience working in the educational setting.

She is currently serving grades K-12 for Buncombe County schools in Asheville, North

Carolina.

As an autism specialist, Marlou coaches and trains instructional staff regarding pro-active

programming and emotional/behavioral support in the classroom. In addition, she conducts

and facilitates social groups for K-12 students with special needs, in collaboration with

speech and occupational therapists as well as special education teachers.

Prior to being an autism/behavior specialist, Marlou was an exceptional children’s

curriculum specialist. She also worked as a middle school intensive intervention teacher for

students with autism and was program director for a mainstreaming program for K-12

students with high functioning autism.

Marlou is a certified TEACCH professional practitioner with University of North Carolina,

Chapel Hill. She also received clinical training from Social Thinking (Michelle Garcia Winner

– San Jose, California). Marlou holds a master’s degree in education (Curriculum and

Instruction) from the University of the Philippines.

Marlou has a passion for constantly improving the educational experience of her students

as they reach their potential in school and be the best they can become. Most important

of all, she is a mom of a consistently happy adult son (Vidal) with autism who currently

works at a restaurant as a busboy and at an ice-cream shop. His positive cheerful attitude

is what drives Marlou to advocate for all individuals with special needs.
