Patricia St. John started her career in teaching, and after nine years left to raise her son with disabilities. Through her own challenges with limited vision Patricia further developed her other senses and was ultimately drawn to gain a greater understanding of, and to study finer aspects of nonverbal communication links and skills. This lead to Patricia’s extraordinary work with dolphins in allowing them to educate her. Her ground breaking research with dolphins pioneered the way of understanding often silent forms of communication in a whole new way. Using what she had discovered and developed from her years of behavioral interacting with different species of dolphins, Patricia was able to break through to children with autism, helping to bridge the gap of communication between these children and their caregivers. Based on Patricia’s astonishing work with dolphins and children with autism, she wrote her award winning book, “The Secret Language of Dolphins.” The book won the prestigious Delta Kappa Gamma Society International Educator’s Award. St. John is also a long time Fellow of the famed Explorers Club in recognition of her pioneering discoveries and her work in uncharted areas of nonverbal communication, as well as her many published professional papers on the subject. Patricia's newest book: “Once An Enchanted Island”, while fiction weaves within it many truths that we all can relate to. She also runs and operates two businesses, Enchanted Environments, and Patricia St. John Fine Antiques.
