Brittany P. Franklin, M.S.E. has been part of the ACCESS Early Childhood team for more than 15 years as a lead teacher, Pre-K 3 team leader, and coordinator. She is currently the ACCESS Early Childhood Specialist and oversees continuing education for all of our teachers and teacher's assistants. As the Early Childhood Specialist, Brittany is able to work with the students and watch them gain new skills throughout their journey at ACCESS. She enjoys watching her students learn as they experience the unique, literacy-based curriculum used at ACCESS and believes early intervention is key. Our team approach and multi-sensory learning methods can help our students reach their full potential by honing in on their strengths and using those strengths to help them develop needed skills.
Brittany holds a Bachelor in Psychology and Early Childhood Education from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and a Master in Early Childhood Special Education from Arkansas State University. She is licenced through the Arkansas Department of Education as a PK-4 Early Childhood Education teacher and PK-4 Special Education teacher. She received her certification in the Dubard-Association Method in 2016. She is currently a certified Autism Informed Professional and is working to complete her certificate as an Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist.
During her down time, Brittany enjoys getting out and exploring the state with her husband and two daughters. She and her husband often go out on long hikes around the US leaving everything behind but their backpacks. Brittany has also developed an interest in fencing through her youngest daughter. She hopes this will be something they can share throughout their lifetime.
