Thoughts From a Clinical Support Role

DSC_5714 Jenny Davy has been with Cornerstone almost 2 years. She started out as a therapist in Greenwood. She recently graduated from Ball State with her Master’s in ABA, and has recently taken on the additional responsibilities as a Clinical Support Position. See what Jenny has to say about these new roles and responsibilities.

I joined Cornerstone Autism Center in April of 2012 and have been in the field of ABA for four years.   I was impressed with the staff engagement and the beautiful facility when interviewing for the job.

I have spent time on the floor as a full time therapist and have also gone with Cornerstone into a local school to work with a client there. For the past 6 months I have taken on the role as Clinical Support in the mornings.

The role of Clinical Support has allowed me to work closely with the Clinical Leads. This position entails supporting leads with the development of behavior plans, making stimuli, helping therapists as the leads see fit, updating behavior data and aiding in writing monthly reports. In addition to this, I also prepare group lessons for 3 social groups that the clients participate in daily. I closely monitor these groups and support the therapist in implementing the lessons.

The role as Clinical Support has been beneficial in preparing for a role as a Clinical Lead. I recently graduated from Ball State University with a Master’s Degree in Special Education with a focus in Autism and ABA, and am currently preparing to sit for my board certification exam.   The position of Clinical Support allows me to work with a variety of clients across all levels of the VB Mapp. It has also given me the opportunity to see how each lead works with their clients as well as the therapist who are with those clients.
