Lauren Giammalvo M.S., BCBA, LABA

Associate Clinical Director

Hi! My name is Lauren Giammalvo and I am excited to introduce myself as the Associate Clinical Director for Putnam, Connecticut and Providence, Rhode Island. I’ve been in the field of behavior analysis since 2010 and joined Autism Learning Partners when our Rhode Island region opened in 2019. I pride myself on a compassionate and family-centered approach to treatment. It is my mission to ensure that my families, clients, and coworkers feel supported, valued, and heard.
I’m a native of New Bedford, Massachusetts and currently reside in Rhode Island with my husband. In my spare time I teach child yoga classes and love supporting small, local businesses.

I look forward to contributing to a culture of clinical excellence and inclusivity and would love to chat about how I can help serve your region.

Frequently Asked Questions in Putnam

Yes, we do! We invite you to visit us at our Putnam location:

62 Providence Pike
Putnam, CT 06260

There are parent organizations and resources within the Putnam area that may be helpful supplements to ABA therapy. Please contact us for more information.

Therapy sessions might take place in your home or community, depending on what the ALP Clinical team recommends. Each session, a Behavior Technician will work one-on-one with your child, targeting individualized goals embedded into fun and functional activities. Sessions can last 2-4 hours depending on your child’s needs. Parent training is always a part of the treatment plan, as we want you to have that support.

The medical diagnosis must come from a diagnostic provider, such as a Primary Care Physician or Psychologist. Unfortunately, an IEP will not suffice on its own. A diagnostic evaluation, like the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS), would need to be completed.

We use evidence based behavior analytic techniques. The specific techniques implemented by the ALP Clinical team are entirely dependent on your child and the goals identified during the assessment. Your Clinical Supervisor will discuss the techniques more during the assessment. It’s important to our clinical teams that the right techniques are selected for your child. There are no one size fits all.
