Joyce Keohane


Joyce Keohane received a bachelor’s degree in education from Union University in Jackson, TN, and a master’s degree in special education from University of Memphis.  While serving as a tutor for students with learning challenges while in high school, she recognized what she wanted to focus on in her career.  She became a member of Future Teachers of America and followed that path to meet her goal. Joyce has 20 years’ experience as a special education teacher in public schools and received Teacher of the Year and special educator awards from local television agencies and non-profit organizations, as well as school-based recognitions. 

Keohane served her public school district as a supervisor for the Behavior Consultant support team, providing professional development in many areas including disability awareness, autism, emotional/behavioral disorders and crisis management.  She then served as director of special education for a municipal district where she retired in 2021 with 44 years of service in the field.

She has co-written the NPR, Inc laminated reference guides Autism: Strategies from A – Z with Wendy Ashcroft and Sue Argiro and published a book called Success Strategies for Teaching Kids with Autism publishes by Routledge.  This trio has presented at the local, state, national and international level.  Their presentations focus on evidence-based practices for students with special needs, particularly in the area of autism spectrum disorders and emotional disturbance.

Keohane continues to consult with the public school district and mentor new teachers, behavior consultants and administrators as she shares her passion for special students and their families.
