In addition to our team leaders, our team is made up of bright, compassionate, and committed women, who have a genuine love for children with special needs.The Reason for HOPE employs a great group of Registered Behavior Technicians! Each technician is a college graduate or is currently pursuing a bachelor's degree within the field of psychology, education, or a related field. Our Registered Behavior technicians work under the supervision of our BCBA's and assist in implementing treatment plans. We also employ Speech Language Pathology - Assistants, who assist in carrying out treatment plans developed by our Speech Language Pathologists. Curriculum specialists that are certified educators also assist our team here at HOPE. Our curriculum specialists work closely with our clinicians to ensure appropriate social skills, group targets and help ensure our special event days and community outings are extra special for our kids!
We believe our most precious tool is our team, so we invest time, energy and resources in ensuring that all team members are properly trained and supervised. This approach leads to greater understanding of therapy procedures thus directly impacting the success of the children we serve! We HOPE that you find our team members to be warm and friendly providing you with a spirit of HOPE!
