Alex Daniels has only been with Hopebridge for a short time, but she’s not new to the world of autism or Applied Behavior Analysis. Having prior experience in Ohio and now working out of the brand new Edgewood, Ky. facility, she is so excited to see the Hopebridge360™ model expand in the Midwest this year.
Previously working as a behavior technician, every day offered new rewards. She got to be part of something huge, just by teaching and supporting as these individuals faced some of their toughest challenges.
Now, as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) at Hopebridge, Alex gets to see those rewards amplified. She values the center’s team culture. Seeing how compassionate, creative and involved everyone is – and how it impacts the kiddos – made the decision to join easy for her.
Alex is confident the new Hopebridge autism treatment centers will help change the standard of care in Ohio in general. Currently, many families have to go to two or three different places to make sure their children get what they need. Others have in-home services, but it can be difficult to coordinate everything. And as a therapist in home settings, Alex found it can be difficult to get in contact with other providers to make sure everyone is on board with the same program.
To her, the fact that Hopebridge offers one-on-one ABA services, plus other occupational therapy, speech therapy and physical therapy in one place, will be a dream for some of these families. With everything in one place, the hope is that parents will now be able to get their children (and themselves) on a more regular schedule by reducing travel time, miscommunication and inconsistencies between therapy programs.
