Amy Rheaume, M.Ed., BCBA, LABA was recently elected Vice President of the New Hampshire Association of Behavior Analysis (NHABA), an affiliated chapter of the Association of Behavior Analysis International (ABAI).

As a behavior analyst for the clinical outreach team in New Hampshire, Amy leads in-home and school-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services for children of all ages. The work she does enables students experiencing autism and other significant challenges to be included in their classrooms and to fully participate in home and community life.  

Amy is also the parent of a teenage son on the autism spectrum, so she’s passionate about bringing ABA to all those who need it. Not every child and adult who would benefit from ABA gets these vital services, and equitable access remains a challenge for many. “The experience of having a child with autism has given me insight that I can apply in many different situations as I continue to advocate." Amy has devoted herself to mastering insurance and education law to better advocate for both her son and for those she serves professionally. Amy is also passionate about professional development for the next generation of behavior analysts and behavior technicians: a shortage of qualified ABA practitioners contributes to the lack of equity in services, for both children and adults.

Excited about stepping into the role of NHABA vice president, Amy is looking forward to furthering their mission. Amy has been an active member and volunteer of the NHABA since it's inception and has helped the organization grow from a small band of behavior analysts to a thriving community with an annual conference attracting hundreds. Amy expects to see the ABA community continue to expand its presence in NH. 

Amy Rheaume is living our mission to build strong communities by empowering individuals every day. Thank you Amy for the transformative energy and passion you bring to both your work with Aspire and the broader community.
