Our expert panel will discuss how synergies are formed by bringing together a team of specialists to address autism care.
Ms. Stengel began her academic training at Temple University and continued her graduate training at the University of North Texas, where she received her Master of Science degree in Behavior Analysis. During her tenure at both universities, Ms. Stengel implemented ABA treatment programs for children with autism as well as developed and implemented caretaker training programs to allow children to be successful within their family unit. Upon obtaining her MS degree, Ms. Stengel started specialized practices for children with behavior disorders including autism. She maintains a specific passion for helping children and families with a particular interest in population health management and clinical outcomes.
Ms. Stengel currently serves as CEO of NeurAbilities, a health care organization, where she is charged with increasing clinical outcomes by implementing an interdisciplinary model of intervention including neurology, neuropsychology, behavior analysis, speech and language and occupational therapy services. She maintains a unique skill set in providing high quality care through standardized and replicable intervention models.

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.
Dr. Chadehumbe’s belief that the brain and mind are closely associated has inspired her to help children with neurological and neurobehavioral issues. She recognizes the importance of instilling hope in patients and their families through evidence-based and interdisciplinary care, with compassion and respect.
Viewing childhood as a journey, full of possibilities, Dr. Chadehumbe strives to help each child become the best possible version of themselves. While she cares for patients with a variety of neurological concerns, she has special interest in providing treatment for patients with self-injurious behaviors in autism and neurodevelopmental disorders, headaches, dysautonomia, 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, epilepsy, and integrative medicine.
As an advocate for children with a variety of neurological concerns, Dr. Chadehumbe sits on the Medical Advisory Board of the International 22q11.2 Foundation and Eden Autism Board in Princeton, NJ. She is also a recent recipient of Penn Pearls Teaching Award by the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and of the Diversity Leadership Program Award by the American Academy of Neurology. In October of this year, Dr. Chadehumbe was appointed to the Child Neurology Foundation Board and was elected and approved for Fellow of the American Academy of Neurology status.
Dr. Chadehumbe received her medical degree from the University of Zimbabwe, conducted her pediatric residency at Michigan State University and her child neurology residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center University. Following her academic studies, she accomplished triple Board-Certification, specializing in Pediatrics, Child Neurology and Headache medicine.
When asked about the origin of her elegant accent, she explains that it uniquely evolved through her lifetime, being born in England, attending medical school in Zimbabwe, and living in the United States since 2000 when she arrived to pursue her medical career. She now lives in New Jersey with her husband and two sons.
