Ms. Sheridan is a BCBA serving our South Shore families. She entered the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) when she was in college and was fatefully matched with an ABA-based substantially separate preschool in the New Bedford Public Schools. She found herself in awe of the rapid progress the students exhibited and resonated with a method of teaching where silliness and piggybacks were encouraged to reinforce desired skills. Alesia pursued a Masters’ degree in Behavior Analysis through Simmons College and later worked as an Adjunct Faculty member for their Intensive Practicum Program. Alesia has experience in both private school and home-based settings. She has worked with children ages 16 months to 16 years old. Her clinical interest includes the study of verbal behavior. Ms. Sheridan finds it greatly rewarding to change the trajectory of a child’s life who was previously minimally verbal. During sessions, Alesia can often be found running around in a super hero cape, dancing to Baby Shark, or being covered in shaving cream.
