A team of 16 make up the Blue Bird Day Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy team, 5 Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) and 11 Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT).
Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA)
Blue Bird Day’s Behavior Analysts play a key role on the team as they oversee the instruction programs and behavior management protocols. They are responsible for conducting assessments, creating individualized treatment plans, caregiver training, data analysis, protocol modifications, and provide collaboration within the therapeutic disciplines and the families.
Our Behavior Analysts are Courtney McCann (Department Head, BCBA), Jillian Gottschling (Lead BCBA), Kelly Dues, and Abby Guthrie.
Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT)
