Independent Consulting Behavior Analyst
Amy began using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to teach children and young adults with autism and other developmental disabilities in home programs in 1996. Since then, she has also used ABA to teach academics to typically developing preschool and elementary school children in school settings, to teach oral language to preschool children with severe hearing impairments (who were using cochlear implants), and to teach the English language to Chinese-speaking children in a Montessori preschool in Taiwan.
Amy received a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas in Human Development (now called Applied Behavioral Sciences) with an emphasis in Behavior Analysis in 1999. She also received a Master’s degree from KU in Human Development (Applied Behavioral Sciences) in 2001. Amy became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in 2002.
As an independent consulting behavior analyst, she specializes in teaching young children with autism and other developmental disabilities beginning language to conversation and social language skills; social skills; self-help skills; and pre-academic and academic skills. She also takes great pleasure in teaching others about effective teaching procedures, data management and analysis, and program development and management. Amy also has experience in mentoring/supervising (now successful) BCBA candidates.
