    Ronni Clark, M.Ed BCBA

    I attended Western Michigan University as an undergraduate. There I participated in a practicum in which I worked one-on-one providing intensive behavior therapy in a public preschool for children with autism. Subsequent to receiving my BS in psychology at WMU in 2003, I accepted a position with Applied Behavior Consultants in Duarte, California. There I was trained in assessment, supervision, PECS, parent-training, and clinical skills. Clients received home and school-based services through the Regional Centers and school districts of California. During this time I also became a Board Certified Associate Behavior Analyst (2007). After a brief experiment in teaching, I returned to ABA in 2009 at ACES in Orange County, CA. I began supervising for various ACES locations, including Colorado Springs, CO, and Tacoma, WA. After relocating to their Colorado office, I remained with ACES until I became interested in working independently. Since 2012 I have preferred independent consulting to supervising for a large company, and currently contract for Behavior and Learning Group, LLC. I graduated with my MEd in special education and ABA from Arizona State University in 2015. Subsequently I became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) in November, 2015. I currently work with Behavior and Learning Group as an independent behavior consultant and as a provider for TriCare/United, Medicaid, and Anthem Blue Cross in Colorado Springs, CO.

    Esther Harris, B.A. BCaBA

    I was introduced to ABA therapy while working as a para-professional in a pilot preschool program for children with Autism in 2009. After seeing the amazing accomplishments the students achieved through ABA therapy, I got hooked. I enrolled in Florida Institute of Technology’s Applied Behavior Analyst on-line classes and received my BCaBA in 2012 after having worked two years in the preschool program. From there I worked two years for a local in-home-based company. With this company, I not only worked with children on the spectrum, but also with adults who had various mental health diagnosis. Seeking to gain more experience, I worked for a clinic-based company here in Colorado Springs. I developed programming, supervised the clinicians, and put together materials to enrich the clinic’s programs. I returned to the in-home program with Behavior and Learning Group because I feel the family life gives children the foundation of social life. I have had the pleasure of teaching parents the technique of ABA and witnessing the positive outcomes of those parent trainings in their family life. Developing programming for the children has been a wonderful experience for me, knowing that the programs/skills being taught will assist the children to be able to move through life. I have a great love for children (I must, I have 7 of my own!) and helping them acquire the skills needed to move through life is a joy for me. My professional passion is helping families, working with them so they may relax and enjoy their children and their home life. I have illustrated two books in a series entitled Peebles Beaubian: The Giraffe with Autism and look forward to illustrating more in this series. The personal joys in my life are my husband and my children and granddaughter. Children are gifts to be treasured.
