Kelly Perez, BCBA, is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst providing ABA therapy, supervision, evaluations and assessments at NeurAbilities Healthcare in the area surrounding the Voorhees Diagnostic Center (and Cherry Hill Clinic opening mid-December).
Kelly holds a Master’s degree in Applied Behavioral Analysis from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA and a Bachelor’s in Psychology from West Chester University in Pennsylvania.
“While I was pursuing my bachelor’s degree in psychology, I had planned to go into clinical psychology,” Kelly remembers when asked why she chose a career in behavior analysis. “But when I got a summer job working at a camp for kids with autism, I absolutely loved working with the kids and was amazed at the progress they made in six short weeks. From that point, I knew I wanted to work with kids with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”
Prior to working at NeurAbilites, Kelly worked as a BCBA for several organizations throughout PA, including organizations providing group home care and one-to-one in-home ABA services. She has experience working with children of all ages and with a variety of behavioral concerns.
Kelly expressed that she loves being able to see the progress kids can make with ABA and seeing the changes it makes to their entire family.
We are excited to welcome Kelly to our South Jersey ABA team!
