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.
