Pathways Developmental Learning Center


April Choulat, Director of Pathways Developmental Learning Center, Inc.,  provides assessment, consultation, education and training for parent-driven remediation programs for autism and related developmental disorders. Currently programs are based on Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) and HANDLE. Though located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, Ms. Choulat provides services worldwide via in-person assessment and long distance ongoing supervision.

Ms. Choulat received her B.S. in Communication Disorders in 2002 from Florida State University and a Graduate Certificate in Autism in 2005 from Penn State. In addition, she was the first RDI(r) Program Certified Consultant in the state of Florida (2003) and will be the first Certified HANDLE(r) Practitioner in Florida. After 5 years of exposure to the HANDLE program and witnessing significant progress in several clients with autism, Ms. Choulat decided to pursue the most advanced level of HANDLE certification. She is privileged to have interned with Judith Bluestone, the founder of the HANDLE program, and Pamela Ruffner, the first Certified HANDLE Practitioner.
