Recently, Dr. Mowfaq Mustafa, Executive Director of the Future Centre in Abu Dhabi, sent me pictures of his CLM Team along with the following comments:

Congratulations in advance, for the possible opportunities for CLM to be implemented in China and other countries. I am optimistic that they too will experience the similar benefits of CLM among individuals with autism and other disorders.


To date CLM has helped many of our young students. We have students who have been able to be integrated into mainstream schools after developing the repertoires that CLM promises to achieve. We also have moved some students from CLM programming to other internal classes that use other curricular programming and they are adapting well.


I have spoken with a number of parents who were happy with the improvement of their children’s behavior and ways of communicating. I congratulate you Vicci and your team (e.g., Dr. Cathy Scutta, Christina Lovaas, Rae-Ann Arevalo, Kristen Wood, Maribel Castillo, Liyu Chen, Nipa Bhuptani, and numerous other CLM Colleagues around the world) for the developments happening also within your organization and the standards that you have placed upon the implementing sites. Our team is happy to comply because they know that such standards assure them of good results for the children.

October is National Principals Month! The CLM Center of Excellence will be celebrating principals all month long.

Today, we celebrate Melissa D Hensley, principal of Central High School in Woodstock, Virginia! Thank you Vicci Tucci for recommending her for our #thankaprincipal shoutout!

Mrs. Hensley is an innovative educator who operates under a shared leadership model to develop programs so that all students are successful. Mrs. Hensley is a huge supporter of the Competent Learner Model and is an advocate for evidence-based instruction for all students!

One of the many programs she has developed includes the LIFE (Learning Independence for Everday) post-secondary program that focuses on developing the “Core of All Learning” skills with adults.

These are just a few of the countless reasons why we are thankful for Principal Hensley during National Principals Month. Thank you, Principal Hensley, for your leadership and support of CLM. #thankaprincipal #shoutout #principalsmonth

Do you work with an amazing principal who deserves a shout out? Send the CLM Center of Excellence a message with the principal’s name, a short description of what they do that makes them so great, and a picture (if you have one!).

The CLM Center of Excellence will then celebrate them on our social media accounts! #thankaprincipal!
