Mara Degagne

Behavior Technician

I began my career of working with those with autism in San Diego, CA.,

where I was trained and attended workshops with people who are still

greatly respected in the field today!  I have worked as an independent

contractor through Applied Behavior Consultants, where I opened a

supportive living agency and managed a program that supported adults with disabilities in opening micro enterprises. In San Diego, I was fortunate enough to be part of innovative self supporting performing arts group that I co -directed. Music is a Universal language and remains a passion of mine.

I am a certified Early Educator and Speech Assistant and have been working in the field of pediatric growth and development for the last twenty years.  I have a B.S in special education with a focus in communication disorders and am currently working toward becoming a BCBA! I currently work in the public school system as a speech assistant, and have done so for the last 5 years. My knowledge ranges from basic educational concepts to principles of ABA as well as a knowledge of low and high tech Augmentative Assistive communication devices. On a personal note I love music and opportunities to do community events!
