Cindy Gwinn

M.Ed., QDDP

Developmental Disability Consultant 

I am an optimist and a realist.

I have worked as an autism information and referral specialist, a Medicaid waiver case manager, the autism policy specialist for the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, and a Medicaid Waiver Group Home provider. I have my Bachelors in Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University and my Masters in Special Education with a Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis from George Mason University.


I have met hundreds of families over the last 20 years. I hope to share my insights from these families and continue to assist providers who are now supporting these individuals and families. My specialty is autism.  


I am the mom of two beautiful girls. I am happy to say I am newlywed. I enjoy being outdoors when the weather isn't sweltering, go flat water kayaking if I can find the time, and love to go see live music.
