Choosing an applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy center is personal – you have to look at the center’s approach to ABA therapy and the staff—the therapists, supervisors, and team—who will be interacting with you and your child. At Innovative Behavior Options, our staff is the best in the business, and we’ll partner with you and your child to develop an individualized therapy plan that meets your family’s goals.
To help you get to know our team, we spotlight some of our rock-star staff here on our blog! Today, we’d like to introduce you to Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) Anne!
Atlanta Area ABA Therapy Center Staff Spotlight
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Sure! I am originally from Yorktown, Virginia, but I moved to Atlanta last year from Chicago. I am the youngest of five girls.
How long have you been part of the IBO team?
I’ve worked with Innovative Behavior Options for one year. Prior to starting at IBO, I worked with adults with special needs in the group home setting.
What does a typical day look like for you?
A typical workday consists of observing 2-3 clients per day, administering assessments, training Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) on treatment planning, parent trainings, and developing new goals for clients.
What interested you initially about this type of work?
I love working with children. As a former teacher, I enjoy seeing the children grow and learn new skills.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy parent trainings the most. I like interacting with the parents and helping them learn new skills and tips to assist in their everyday life.
What is the best part of your week?
The best part of my week is observing clients in the school setting (former teacher here)!
What causes are you passionate about?
Gender and racial equality are causes that I’m passionate about. Ultimately, we will achieve success when inclusivity and gender diversity improve. Equality should be everyone’s goal.
What puts a smile on your face?
My nephew! He’s almost two years old and watching him grow and learn new things each day is the most rewarding feeling ever!
