Get to Know Me
and My Philosophy



Elise Brown Owner &

Board Certified Behavior Analyst 

I have a passion for education and learning. I believe that we are always learning from those around us and the environments we interact with. I believe that building the best teams and supports can help any learner succeed. 

I have extensive experience working with school districts providing behavior supports for students ages PreK-Young Adult. My areas of expertise include Applied Behavior Analysis, IEP and 504 behavioral assessment and intervention, PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports), Program and Classroom Management, Staff Development and Parent Training. I believe that we are all members of the same support team and we can build successful learning environments by working together. 


The Learner Knows Best

Together we can help any learner succeed! I believe that if a child/person is not learning or motivated to learn, it is up to us as their team to create supportive environments to help make them successful. To provide the best education we need to meet the needs of the individual and together we can accomplish amazing things!
