Kaori Nepo, PhD, BCBA-D
Director, Behavior Services – PA Region
As a behavior analyst who works directly with children and supervises a department of ABA therapists, Dr. Nepo finds enjoyment in finding solutions to any problem or barrier by using her creativity and working with a team to make improvements for patients and their families. Additionally, Dr. Nepo has done extensive research on the use of commonly available technology for behavior interventions. She has presented her research, publications, and clinical experience at local, national, and international conferences. “I find that different forms of technology can be reinforcing with both my patients, and my team members, and the data supports this finding.”
When asked what a common question she gets about her practice in behavior science, she responds: “can you analyze my behavior?”
In addition to her role at NeurAbilities, Dr. Nepo holds leadership positions at the state and international levels in the field of behavior analysis and is actively collaborating on research projects with Temple University, Capella University, and University of Delaware. Dr. Nepo earned her Bachelor of Arts and Sciences, Master of Education and Doctorate in Education from Temple University.
