In addition to strengthening treatment programs, and interventions across settings and providers.

About the Instructor: Hi, I’m Amy! I was born and raised in a small town in Connecticut, but I have spent most of my adult life in Colorado where I currently live. I have been working in Early Childhood since 2011. Over the years I have had many roles within the field from teaching soccer skills, running fitness classes and working in both private pre-schools and public schools. As I was completing my undergraduate degree I concentrated on Young Children with Behavior Disorders and ADHD, this had a heavy focus on ABA, I went on to complete a complementary program for my Early Childhood Special Educator certification in 2015, that again had a heavy ABA focus. I then decided to go back to school for another masters in solely in ABA so I could become a BCBA, and graduated from ASU in 2020 and went on to pass my test in November 2021. As I was completing my course work and preparing for the test, I was already thinking about how I could begin to disseminate ABA into the special education world, and create those bridges we need to work together for our students. I am so excited to be a tiny part of the SNABA team!

Target Audience: Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) working in Educational settings, or who provide training to other adults, educators and practitioners.
