I have been working in the field of learning disability for over 15 years. I graduated with an MSc in Applied Behaviour Analysis at National University of Ireland, Galway, and am a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA). In Ireland I worked within schools and residential homes providing behaviour support to young people and their families. I moved to the UK in 2013 and worked as a Behaviour Analyst and then as part of Senior Leadership in the capacity of the Senior Behaviour Analyst at TreeHouse School, Ambitious About Autism, where I worked across the school with a variety of age groups and ability levels. I managed and supported the schools Behaviour Analyst team, providing clinical supervision on the model of practice for the school.
Creative Behavioural Solutions stemmed from my passion to create a service that can meet the needs of all through the science of ABA.
I have been working in the field of ABA for 12 years. Starting at Treehouse School as a Psychology graduate, I then gained my MSc in ABA in 2017 through Bangor University, and qualified as a BCBA in February 2020. I have worked with children from reception up to sixth form, supporting with transitioning to college and further education settings. I am experienced in working collaboratively as part of a multi disciplinary team and liaising with external stakeholders.
I am committed to providing an individualised service which caters to the specific needs of the young person, improving the quality of life for young people and their families.
I have worked with adults and children with learning disabilities for the past 10 years across different settings. I have worked as first a tutor and the behaviour consultant with children and adults in schools, home programs, and residential settings using the principles of Positive Behaviour Support and ABA to teach functional skills and reduce challenging behaviour. I completed my MSc in Positive Behaviour Support through the Tizard Centre at the University of Kent. I am passionate about creating the best support possible for the young people I work with.
I use person centred planning to ensure the perfect fit for each individual person, ensuring that all interventions are tailored to the individual and their families.
I have been working in the field of ABA for seven years, having first gained some voluntary experience during my Masters in Applied Psychology. I started working as a trainee tutor and progressed to Behavioural Consultant. I completed BACB approved coursework through Florida Institute of Technology in 2019. I have worked with children from reception up until the age of 25 and finishing college with an emphasis on training carers and giving learners an 'ideal week'.
I am passionate about promoting independence and improving the quality of life of our clients and their families.
I have been working with individuals with ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders for my entire working career and have over nine years of experience in working in the field of applied behaviour analysis. Over the years I have provided individualised ABA services to children and adults across school, home and clinic environments in Ireland, the US and the UK. I graduated with an M.Ed in Autism and Developmental Disabilities from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015 and qualified as a Board certified Behaviour Analyst in May 2016.
I am passionate about working collaboratively with parents, helping them to embed the principles of ABA into their daily lives and coaching them through the delivery of ABA programming at home and in the community.
