Ryan Shafer, BS is one of our Behavior Technicians who has worked in early intervention for the past eight years. He received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Criminal Justice in 2010 and completed a pre-medical post-baccalaureate program at Quinsigamond College in 2018. He has worked with children in a variety of settings and has a special interest in sensory integration and anxiety in early childhood. He is trained in ABA and aspires to one day become a practicing neuropsychologist conducting assessments and providing therapy to children in need. When asked why he chose this field Shafer said, “I have a passion for working with children since my year of service with AmeriCorps, specifically within the CHIPS program (Children of Incarcerated Parents). My desire to work with children in a therapeutic modality came from my time at the Early Childhood Treatment Center in Torrance, CA. There I witnessed the amazing difference early intervention can have on the quality of life for the children and their families.” Ryan’s ability to see potential in every client that walks through our doors coupled with his extensive experience has made him a huge asset to behavior network! We are happy to have him on our team. #ABA#behavioranalysis#therapywithlove

Erica is one of our Senior Lead Therapist here at Behavior Network. She has a Master's in Applied Behavior Analysis from Western Connecticut State University. Erica has been with us for over 3 years and we have been so happy to have her. Cervantes goes above and beyond to ensure the entire family gets what they need from our office not just the individual. She works hard on and off the clock. When asked why she got into this field Erica responded with, "When I graduated from college, I knew I wanted to do something hands on related to my degree. I replied to an ad on Craigslist (lol) and this is how I found the wonderful world of ABA! The first clinic I worked at was great, but I wanted to do something more. Amanda found me on Indeed and the moment I met her and the staff, I knew something special was happening at Behavior Network. I've had the pleasure of growing with Amanda and Behavior Network the past 3 going on 4 years!" We are excited to announce Erica will be taking her BCBA exam in May of this year and can't wait to see whats next!
