Jeanette began her career in the classroom working with students with developmental disabilities. She was well known for her ability to create unique and age appropriate learning tasks. When a colleague suggested she make and sell the products herself, Jeannette and her husband created "Hands on Tasks," with her husband hand building all the wood materials. The system they have developed is based on scaffolding [small steps], is visually supported, has been classroom tested, is evidence-based, and offers task analysis, diversification, and STEM opportunities. Now 12 years later, the company is global with a mission to delight children across the world, inspire children in their intellectual and personal development, and to empower them to be able to move into the work force. Hands on Talks is an organization dedicated to the creation of learning to tasks for the needs of children, teens and young adults with learning disabilities. Since its inception, Hands-On Tasks has provided substantial learning opportunities for those affected by autism and other developmental disabilities. This scaffolding work task system recognizes that each child is an individual and that all children need to feel successful in order to succeed.
