Sarah KupferschmidtSarah realized that Behaviour Analysis was her calling when she first started working with children with autism in 1999. Once she discovered its effectiveness and the impact it had in helping children with autism and their families, it inspired her to pursue a Masters of Arts in Psychology, with a specialization in Behaviour Analysis from the University of Nevada, Reno. She is also a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA).

Not only does Sarah enjoy working directly with children with autism, she’s also very passionate about empowering others with the most effective tools to teach children with autism.  She has been training staff and clinicians, and coaching parents on how to do this since she started.  She is also passionate about the science and research behind the tools that she advocates for.  In partnership with Brock University, Sarah is currently involved in a research project which involves the evaluation of a parent training package that will help empower parents with tools to teach his/her child with autism important safety skills.  Read more about that project here.

She has been a Part-Time or Adjunct Professor since 2005 teaching ABA courses.  Sarah also regularly presents workshops to parents, therapists or educators on a variety of topics related to teaching or working with individuals with autism.  Sarah is a Huffington Post Contributor, a TEDx speaker, and was named Top Safety Contributor for Autism Parenting Magazine in 2014 and Top Behavior Analysis Writer for 2015.
