Rachel Skinner, MA, BCBA, LLP

Looking to find out more about Rachel Skinner, Board Certified Behavior Analyst and the author of this website? Well, you have come to the right place! Currently, I am living with my husband and three kids in the Fort Wayne, IN area serving as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst for Hopebridge Pediatric Specialists.

This is a great organization that truly focuses on helping children! We offer ABA therapy, occupational therapy, speech and physical therapy services. Be sure to check us out!

I graduated with a Masters degree in Applied Behavior Analysis focusing on Professional Psychology and Organizational Behavior Management from Western Michigan University. Later I went on to receive my limited license to practice psychology in Michigan and obtained board certification as a behavior analyst.

I have over 18 years of experience working with children. I have also worked at three different childcare settings, as a nanny, and in classrooms for children with developmental disabilities.

My graduate coursework incorporated the study of self-management behaviors including not smoking, exercising, and eating habits. My behavioral coursework also involved working with children and adults with developmental disabilities, mental illness and emotional impairments.

Although I do share the last name of the famous psychologist and author of Verbal Behavior B.F. Skinner, I am currently not aware of any known relation at this point.

After graduation I began working at a developmental center as a Behavior Analyst managing a caseload of adults with developmental disabilities and severe behavioral challenges. From there I spent time in Michigan as a Behavioral Consultant with DOGstar Productions focusing on dog behavior training, while also consulting with families of children and adults with behavioral challenges.

Then I moved to southern Indiana working as a Behavioral Consultant for children and adults with developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and/or severe behavioral disorders/mental illness. Now, I work primarily with children again supervising ABA therapy programs.

I love what I do and the people I work with, and I am so excited to help even more people through this website! Don't forget to 'like' us on Facebook!
