Dulcie Mercado works as the Outreach Coordinator for Autism Information Services British Columbia (AIS BC). She brings with her many years of experience as a Behaviour Interventionist, Early Childhood Educator, Behaviour Consultant, presenter and trainer. She has worked in collaboration with a variety of programs and organizations province-wide to provide training and consultation around supporting children and youth with various support needs. When she is not involved in supporting families and collaborating with colleagues and community partners, she’s probably trying to learn about the newest supercars and random historical facts to keep up with her young son or sourcing the ingredients for her latest recipe find on Pinterest.
