Myllissa McDuffie M.Ed., BCBA-LBA

Associate Clinical Director

Hi! My name is Myllissa McDuffie and I am excited to be the Associate Clinical Director for our Maryland and Virginia regions. I have been in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis for almost 20 years and have worked in a variety of settings including in-home, schools, and centers providing ABA services. I received my bachelors in psychology from Spelman College and my master’s degree in special education with an emphasis in Autism Spectrum Disorders from Johns Hopkins University. After completing my master’s, I completed post graduate work to become a BCBA. I am passionate about early intervention and collaboration with families to provide high-quality clinical and compassionate care. I am committed to helping your child reach their full potential in an inclusive environment that recognizes each child’s unique strengths and needs.

Yes, if it is considered medically necessary by the ALP Clinical team, the school district allows, and the insurance provider approves. We will collaborate with the education team to build a comprehensive plan for your child.

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.

We currently do not conduct diagnostic evaluations at this location, but can provide families with a list of diagnosticians in the Baltimore area.
