Melanie also enjoyed her three-year time as an ABA behavioral interventionist. She provided one on one ABA intervention techniques to children ages two years old up to twenty-one years old diagnosed with Autism and related disorders. Interventions occurred in the client’s homes, schools, the community, the Special Olympics, summer camps, and regular social groups in the office. She received ongoing training in the field and regular supervision in each client’s programs using multiple techniques such as Discrete Trial Teaching. Melanie thoroughly enjoyed working with these children who ranged from high functioning to severely disabled in communication, motor, and vision.
