Hello, my name is Nick Santillano and I am the Clinical Manger and a Board Certified Behavior Consultant (BCBA) at the Brandywine Center for Autism.
I graduated from University of California, Davis with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. After graduating from UC Davis, I worked as an ABA behavioral therapist in Sacramento, California where I trained under a number of skilled BCBAs and learned the intricacies of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
After working as an ABA behavioral therapist and a lead ABA behavioral therapist, I enrolled in Arizona State University’s Masters of Education in Applied Behavior Analysis program. I moved to the Philadelphia area at that time, where I worked for a company who specialized at providing ABA support to children with Autism. I then obtained my Master of Education in Applied Behavior Analysis and Board Certification in Behavior Analysis.
Today I am proud to be a part of the team here at Brandywine Center for Autism. I enjoy applying my education and years of experience to each child I work with and helping those children make sustainable steps towards independence. I also value the opportunity to pass along my knowledge of ABA to the child’s family, teachers and therapists. By working together, we can all help our children achieve independence.
