Meet our Family Support and Alumni Coordinator:

Dr. Liz Simpson


Liz is a life long educator and advocate for children and families. Liz began her career as an interpreter for the Deaf in Casper, Wyoming. She then went on to work with court adjudicated youth in a residential program, later becoming acting director of that program. From there she spent 20 years as a special educator in public and alternative schools.  After seeing a great need for teachers to be better prepared to teach differently abled children, especially children with LD, AD/HD and Autism, Liz went on to teach Special Education, Human Development, and Collaboration at the University of Wyoming. For the past four years, Liz has been an independent consultant to parent groups on how to help their children with special needs be successful in school, their communities and in life.
