Dr. Stacey Shook

Board Certified Behavior Analyst -Doctoral Northwest Behavorial Associates

“Treating Autism through Intervention and Education”

Introduced by: Alex Chehab

Consistent with the fundraiser “All In For Autism” on April 23rd, Alex introduced her boss, Dr. Stacey Shook, director of the Northwest Behavioral Associates.

 

Dr. Shook explained that when she first began in the industry providing resources for autistic children and children in need, she was shocked at how little the resources were in Seattle for children with special needs.  The applied behavior analysis therapy that has been developed by Behavioral Associates is providing a wealth of services to the parents of special needs children and this program is continuing to grow.  Support includes: In home parent training, Relief of care for short period of time, Workshops that provide education and social family life skills.

One important aspect of the program was the start of early intervention.  Behavioral Associates has tutors that have training and supervision for parents and for the children.

The program has continued to grow abroad, where resources were severely deprived to children with special needs.   The MBA program is located in Jordan, with an MBA program that is currently stationed there.

MBA is funded by grants and fund raisers and minor fees for services from insurance companies such as Medicaid and schools.

BBRC 'Calling Card' Slogan Context

By Paul Osborn

We are creating new ‘calling cards’ for the BBRC (business-card sized invitations to the club).  The back of the cards will reflect the various projects that we are passionate about, drawing from the banners we’ve been creating this year.  The front of the cards will have the address, time, and an invitation/call to action to come join us.  I’m looking for suggestions for that invitation.  It needs to be fairly short, and encourage people to visit us.  For example….

COME FOR BREAKFAST, STAY FOR LIFE or..

CHANGE THE WORLD ONE BREAKFAST AT A TIME

I’m sure you can do better than that…suggestions?
