Our Team


Our professional team of Behavioral Consultants maintain their current knowledge and high-level expertise through Autism Partnership’s commitment to ongoing training. Our consultants primarily support and provide oversight to our supervisors but do also work directly with our Treatment Analysts. Our Supervisors provide weekly support and training to our Treatment Analysts.

Our Treatment Analysts

Our direct-line staff are Treatment Analysts, who play a key role in the success of the program. They work with families and children in one-on-one, group and school settings, and carry out individual treatment plans with passion, expertise and confidence.

All of our Treatment Analysts have a bachelor’s degree while some have or are pursuing master’s degrees. They initially receive four weeks of intensive training and must successfully complete a performance-based assessment before beginning treatment sessions on their own. Our Treatment Analysts receive ongoing supervision including direct observation of their work throughout their career at Autism Partnership.

All new hires are required to complete 160 hours of pre-service orientation and training on implementation of Applied Behavior Analytic intervention with children with ASD. Training and orientation are in the form of lectures, case studies, role-play, case observations, and practical hands-on sessions closely monitored by our Consultants.

All Treatment Analysts attend monthly training sessions to further their knowledge and enhance skills. On-the-job trainings are both didactic and practical, consisting of lectures, case studies, videos, evaluations, and role-play.

Weekly Supervision

Our Treatment Anaylsts receive over 300 hours of induction training and 1:1 supervision by our Supervisors and Consultants in their first year on the job. Thereafter, staff continue to receive over 200 hours of supervision per year with weekly supervisions, regular clinics and team meetings specific to the students they are working with. Weekly supervisions allow us to monitor and evaluate the quality of our services, and track progress of our students.
