Director of Clinical Services
Hi, my name is Chelsie Pessolano and I am the Director of Clinical Services at Brandywine Center for Autism. I completed my undergraduate degree at Albright College with a Bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Studies and my Master’s degree from Eastern University in Clinical Counseling Psychology with a track in Applied Behavior Analysis. After graduation I began working with children with disabilities and found my true passion to help children with Autism.
I have operational, clinical and supervisory experience with children with severe behavioral and emotional needs as well as social skill deficits and communication needs. I have worked with both children and adults in residential, school, home and center settings. I enjoy training and teaching parents, teachers and staff the techniques and strategies of Applied Behavior Analysis.
I am a very passionate and energetic person who enjoys seeing the results of Applied Behavior Analysis in the children we work with! I have been with BCA since October of 2014 and it has been such a wonderful experience to see the center grow to what it is today. Seeing the growth in the children and families we serve has been beyond rewarding; I couldn’t be more excited and proud to be a part of this journey with BCA!
