Lindsay is a Registered Autism Service Provider (RASP) Category B Behaviour Consultant with a Masters degree in Professional Education (MPEd). She continues to work towards becoming a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) through ongoing clinical supervision and research in the field. Within the last year, Lindsay has been learning how to apply behaviour science within health and fitness to help adults improve their healthy habits.
Throughout the last 11 years, Lindsay has gained experienced in various roles across different provinces:
During her first role as an Autism Home Therapist in St. John's, Newfoundland, she quickly fell in love with influencing progress with children on the autism spectrum and related disabilities. Upon graduating her BSc in Behavioural Neuroscience, she volunteered at a Hearing & Speech clinic in her home province, Nova Scotia. To further pursue her passion supporting children with special needs, she moved to Kelowna, BC and gained experience as a Behaviour Interventionist in center-, home-, and community settings. She later broadened her experience through her role as an Education Assistant (EA) within a Kindergarten classroom, supporting a student with autism and other students who needed extra support. She quickly adapted her strategies for practicality within the classroom and collaborated on goals and data-collection methods with the teacher and special education teacher.
Lindsay's extensive direct one-on-one experience supporting children to achieve developmental milestones and her increased education led her to become Senior Behaviour Interventionist at an early intervention center, where she coached a team of Behaviour Interventionists how to best support their client and follow programming goals. Lindsay frequently observed a disconnect between families and staff at center-related services, which motivated her to open her own private practice within home settings to enhance the professional to family communication and collaboration.
Lindsay focuses on creating individualized and meaningful treatment goals for her clients and using natural routines and preferred activities at home to target functional and daily living skills. She enjoys listening to the perspectives of autistic adults' and learning how to incorporate neurodiversity practices within her work.
Lindsay always strives for progress, whether focusing on personal or client goals. She believes that every-day small actions and continual monitoring will result in the accomplishment of bigger goals and enjoys inspiring others with this positive mindset.
