Meet The Team

David and Claire Lottman

  David and Claire Lottman are the proud parents of three amazing and talented boys, Derek (8), Dylan (6), and Jacob (6). David and Claire met in Tallahassee, when they were both attending undergraduate college. After Claire completed her BS in Psycology from Florida State University, they decided to move to Orlando in order for Claire to pursue her dream in Applied Behavior Analysis at Florida Institute of Technology Masters program, while David completed his BS in Business Administration and then completing his Masters in Finance and Accounting from Keller Graduate School of Management. After 9 years of working in separate fields, but always supporting each other, they decided to open Camen Behavioral Services in 2015. Camen Behavioral Services provided ABA services in the home, clinic, and community settings. 

During the past several years, David and Claire have been able to observe many classroom styles and experiences for children and often felt something was amiss. When they decided to homeschool their own children for two years, they researched a variety of curriculum and educational philosophies. When they fell upon the Waldorf education model, something felt RIGHT. After experiencing the joy of education first hand by seeing their boys loving to learn, and hearing parents of Camen Behavioral Services asking for alternative schooling options, the concept of a Performing Arts school using the Waldorf education model was born.

We hope for children to learn how to experiment, use expression, and gain fundamental skillsets while learning to be creative and build character. 

For family time, the Lottman’s enjoy going to singing and dancing to music, hiking, watching Marvel Comic movies, and learning about nature. The boys have their very own garden and love watching their father chomp down on hot jalapenos!

 Born and raised in Orlando, Florida where I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a bachelor’s degree in psychology as well as a certificate in Behavioral Forensics. Just years later, I began working in the wonderful field of Applied Behavior Analysis under the supervision on Claire Lottman. Once Camen Behavioral opened is was a no brainer that I would transition. I have been in the ABA field for almost 6 years now. I will be finish with my master’s degree in Exceptional Education from the University of West Florida December of 2019. I have such a passion for teaching these children in a way that they can understand. It is not for us to have the children to adapt to our teaching method, but it’s for us to adapt to a teaching method that works for the child. Being able to make a difference in the life of children makes all the difference in my life. I enjoy spending time with family laughing and dancing. I also enjoy experiencing new things and places.
