While building a bond with each child, RBT Mallory Cheever teaches gross motor skills, speaking skills, and skills needed for daily living. As an ABA Therapist, Mallory has flourished by working one on one to help each child achieve his or her personal treatment plan goals. She and her clinical team exemplify our mission to provide every child the best life possible.
Mallory shared a little about her work at Hopebridge with us:
What brought you to Hopebridge?
I went to college at Ball State University and I have a degree in psychology. When I moved back home, I started as a substitute teacher thinking that I wanted to teach, but decided that was not the field for me. The idea of being a teacher for 30 kids wasn’t appealing to me since you don’t get to spend much one-on-one time with each child. At Hopebridge, I have the opportunity to work with each child individually and it is a more personal experience. You have time to learn how each child thinks. Plus, when I provide therapy to my child, I have the clinical support and guidance of a BCBA. When I need help there is always someone who can clarify my questions and assist me in determining the right programs for my child.
What is the environment like at Hopebridge?
At Hopebridge, we focus on one-on-one activities with each child. I like this type of environment and teaching because it enables us to build special bonds with our kids. I get to learn everything about them – their idiosyncrasies and what makes them their own people. Learning so much about these children translates over to becoming better therapists for them because we know how they work. We get to know which technique is going to work best for each and how to create the best learning experiences for them.
What makes Hopebridge special?
The culture. I have never worked for a company that has such a good sense of family. I come to work every day excited to be here. I love working with my kids. I currently work with two fantastic children, but I also like the chemistry between staff members. Everyone is happy to see each other. We like being together, we like working together. It’s just a good cohesive group of people.
