Susan Hammerand, RBT

Susan joined the Ally team in 2019, wanting to take a step deeper into the pool of knowledge available at the clinic. Susan moved to Phoenix after graduating with a Bachelors of Science in Special Education from Northern Illinois University to pursue a lead teaching position in a private therapeutic day school for children who demonstrated socially significant maladaptive behaviors.

Susan then moved to behavioral health and gained her Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) certification. Susan was trained to use procedures such as Natural Environment Training, Functional Communication Training,  Language for Learning, and implemented behavior plans for each client in both home and clinic settings. This year, Susan has begun her pursuit to become a Behavior Analyst and has started her master’s program at Florida Institute of Technology.
