Stacy and Chris have a combined total of 25 years working with children on the spectrum. They’ve both received their Master’s in Psychology from Nova Southeastern University.
Hi, I’m Stacy!! I’ve been doing ABA therapy since 2004. I first learned by using Discrete Trial Training in a clinical setting. After realizing I didn’t agree with the techniques taught to me, I set off to learn something new. I then learned about Verbal Behavior and using play to teach new skills, still in a clinical setting. In 2010, I became a provider for the Early Steps program where I learned to use ABA techniques in a more relaxed, home setting.
Greetings! I began working with children on the spectrum during my intership in 2012. During this time, I noticed a pattern in how difficult it was for older children to receive care. As my career progressed, I was exposed to other mental health issues in the teen population such anxiety, negative thoughts, substance abuse, and co-occuring diagnosis.
