Elizabeth M

Behavior Therapist
Blue Bird Day Employee Since 2023

Professional Goals

  1. I plan to return to school to pursue a doctorate in occupational therapy and continue working with kids with disabilities.

My Story

I have been working with children my whole life in a variety of ways. I began tutoring my freshman year of high school and have worked with grade, middle, and high school students, including high school students with disabilities. I worked as a therapeutic assistant at Blue Bird Day and was inspired by the support the behavior therapists provide to the clients. I hope to become an occupational therapist to help children with disabilities with activities of daily living and being a behavior therapist also allows me to help clients in their daily lives.

My Education

Bachelor of Science in Psychology
with a minor in Disability and Human Development,
University of Illinois at Chicago

My Blue Bird Day

I worked as Blue Bird Day as a Therapeutic Assistant during college and loved the community, so I am very excited to be returning as a behavioral therapist.

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
