Jon continues to build on his 30 years of clinical experience in the field of ABA. He works with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and supervises therapy teams to better provide treatment to this highly individualized population. He graduated from UCLA in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and then, in 1991, earned his master’s degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University. In 1992, he began work at the May Institute in Chatham, Massachusetts, eventually running one of the off-campus group homes serving students dramatically impacted with ASD. Jon joined Autism Partnership in 1995, where he is currently a Curriculum Developer. In addition to this role, he provides advanced training, mentoring, and supervision to ABA-service providers and teaching staff within school districts across the country. He has presented both nationally and internationally at conferences on Applied Behavior Analysis, and continues consulting and supervising families, program staff and school district personnel throughout the United States, Australia and Asia.
