Erin O’Brien, BCBA

Director, Behavior Services Cherry Hill

Erin O’Brien, LDT-C, BCBA, is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst providing ABA therapy at the NeurAbilities clinic in Cherry Hill.

Erin received her Post-Masters Certificate in Behavioral Analysis from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA and her Master’s in Learning Disabilities from Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ. Erin also received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA.

When asked why she chose to become a behavior analyst, Erin shared, “When I was an undergraduate, I had no idea what I wanted to do as a career.  In my senior year I did an internship at a special education school for children who were medically fragile and technology dependent.  That experience helped me realize how much I wanted to work with children with special needs.  Since then I’ve had a variety of roles in the field, but working in ABA has by far been the most rewarding.”

Before coming to NeurAbilities, Erin worked as a BCBA for several organizations throughout New Jersey, providing supervision, planning, and direct therapy. She has worked in area hospitals and home settings providing early intervention services to children ages 0 to 3 and conducting family training.

Erin shared that the most commonly asked question she is usually faced with is “why a child engages in a particular behavior.”  Erin explained that there are many factors to consider when answering that question and that part of her job is not only figuring what those factors are but also “helping staff, parents and caregivers learn how to figure it out and, more importantly, make changes to the child’s environment to help the child be more successful.”  

Erin expressed that she loves the moments when something clicks for a child, and you see them using a newly learned skill to fulfill a want or need that had been previously been going unfulfilled or required much more response effort.
