Danielle Costanzo is a Registered S2C Practitioner who provides individual and group sessions with clients, and serves as a Communication Regulation Partner and Direct Support Professional for The Studio at Grace, a day program for adult spellers at the GRACE Foundation of NY. Prior to discovering S2C, Danielle worked as a content writer and editor for various digital outlets, and continues to consult as a content specialist for nonprofit organizations such as the Interactive Advertising Bureau.

Danielle is passionate about creating equal opportunities for minority neurotypes and promoting acceptance of alternative pathways to learning and living. Her number one priority is her clients’ desires and goals. She understands the confining reality of linear models and celebrates a multi-dimensional approach to discovering which regulation, motor and cognitive strategies work best for a particular person’s processing.
In her downtime, Danielle enjoys walking and hiking with her dog, reading up on her latest research topics (which change daily and include subjects as varied as sci-fi, psychology and tiny homes) and playing word games with anyone who will engage her. She has a BA in Bilingual Creative Writing (English and Spanish) from New York University and a CPA in Graduate Foundations (Nonfiction Writing and Video Production) from Columbia University. She has nearly ten years of experience tutoring elementary to high school level writing and literature, math and foreign language. Danielle considers herself a lifelong academic and hopes to continually build on her education.
