About Diamond

I am a graduate of the Alabama State University in Montgomery, AL, with local roots in Georgia. During my academic career I completed a practicum at The Learning Tree, a school for children with Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The practicum was an opportunity to implement the concepts learned in the Applied Behavior Analysis and Learning and Behavior courses required for the undergraduate in Psychology. During this time I was also a volunteer for Second Chance foundation, working with at-risk youth that had been expelled from the Montgomery County Public School System while working a summer job with Top Notch Summer Camp in Lithonia, GA. My experience with children with Autism was expanded once I graduated once I began training to become a Registered Behavior Technician.

I began employment with Butterfly Effects, LLC in June 2015. As an employee I work under the supervision of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst giving tutoring services to a child with ASD. It wasn't until receiving this job that I fully realized my love for working with children on the Spectrum. Each child is so different that the rapport required to help is so different. Working with children in small numbers lets me feel as though I am better able to personally impact each child by catering to their personal needs. Furthermore helping these students in social, behavioral, and cognitive functioning is also an opportunity to test my abilities as a teacher and refine the ABA techniques.

I am a Registered Behavior Technician and have a bachelor's degree in Psychology. This means I am well versed in implementing cognitive and behavioral interventions to students with certain special needs.

I have ample experience with young children and I am constantly gaining more working with children with special needs.
