Project HOPE’s pilot program, Hope Academy included children with autism in classrooms with typical peers, using “shadow” aids as necessary. There, Richard served both as a therapist and educational consultant.  With this background he came to Focus Initiative in the Houston area, serving as Social Coach and Lead Teacher of the Academy.  He has a certificate in Leadership for Non-profit Excellence and a certificate in Wrights-law Special Education and Advocacy sponsored by Texas Parent to Parent.  He has used his BS in Communication, his MBA and his entrepreneurial skills to assist multiple high schools in several states in taking their educational programs from a few students to hundreds.  This has provided a great platform to build a company like Amazing Grass, tailored for the average high schooler and college student.
