Meet the Rock Star, Angelica!

We are so excited to introduce you to Angelica! Angelica is a Registered Behavior Therapist (RBT) in our ABA Therapy program at PediaPlex! She has worked with us for a year and has been an amazing asset to our family!

Angelica chose to become an RBT because “it was my first step in reaching and supporting families touched by autism. Being a mother of a child on the spectrum myself, I hold this role close to my heart.” For those who don’t know, a Registered Behavior Therapist is someone who works directly with clients on individualized programs under the supervision of a BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst). Her typical day is spent working 1-on-1 with a child in our ABA Therapy Program. She works with them on their programs throughout the day and attends Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy with them.

Angelica says that her favorite part about working at PediaPlex is “taking part in improving and amplifying the quality of life and gifts of all those I get to partner with!”

When Angelica isn’t at work, you can find her reading or exploring the outdoors with her awesome kiddos! A fun fact about Angelica is that she prefers books over movies- her favorite book is The Shack.

A Message for Angelica

We know how hard Angelica works, so we wanted to ask one of the moms of her clients to tell us about their experience with her at PediaPlex.

“The joy, the energy, and the love she brings to my child, and all of the children she works with, is undeniable! You can see it on every kids’ face when they see Ms. Angelica. The world needs more Angelicas!!!“ – Nina

We definitely agree with you, Nina!
Angelica- you are a ROCK STAR and we are so glad that we get to have you on our team! Thank you for everything that you do!
