- What are you looking forward to most in the ABA Clinic?
I was always meant to be a teacher, I was just never sure what it was supposed to look like. I am most looking forward to working with the MSP practicum students and imparting not only the knowledge I have, but the passion for ABA that I have as well. I am also looking forward to working with preschool age children and creating an environment for behavior change that will benefit them throughout their lives. I have seen it done first hand and it can be very powerful to witness.
- What is your vision for the MSP clinic?
My vision for the MSP clinic is for it to grow to its full potential. We have an amazing opportunity through MSP to reach out to those in the community who are in need of services that they may not have access to. As for the ABA portion of the clinic, in 5 years I would love to see ABA services for individuals of all ages, not only focusing on early intervention, but on social skills for individuals with disabilities and using ABA for job coaching with adults.
