Nova Southeastern University Director of Clinical Programs and Therapeutic Services Receives Appointment from Florida Governor Charlie Crist



Sue Kabot, Ed.D.

FT. LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – Florida Governor Charlie Crist announced recently, the appointment of Susan Kabot, Ed.D., CCC-SLP., director of Clinical and Therapeutic Programs at Nova Southeastern University’s Mailman Segal Institute (MSI), to the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council.

“This appointment will give me the opportunity to advocate for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families on a state level. It is exciting to use my expertise, both as the parent of an adult child with autism and as a professional in the field, to improve services for this population,” said Kabot, whose term runs through Sept 30, 2014. As the director of clinical programs at MSI, Kabot specializes in researching and developing programs for children with autism spectrum disorders. She also supervises two of MSI’s newest programs for children with autism, Starting Right and the Unicorn Children’s Clinic. She also chairs the University’s Interdisciplinary Council for the Study of Autism.

The Florida Developmental Disabilities Council was established in 1971 to help plan individual and family-centered support for persons with disabilities in Florida. The Council also guides the development and administration of services for people with developmental disabilities by planning and funding research, innovations, and programs designed to improve the quality of their lives. The  purpose of the Council is to assure that individuals with developmental disabilities and their families participate in the design of and have access to needed community services, individualized supports, and other forms of assistance that promote self-determination, independence, productivity, and integration and inclusion in all facets of community life, through culturally competent programs.

Additionally, reappointed to the council was Casey Stewart of Pembroke Pines. Stewart, an employee of Publix Super Markets is a graduate of NSU’s Baudhuin Preschool, which provides services to more than 150 preschoolers with autism through a contract with the School Board of Broward County.
