Prepare the child for the path     not the path for the child


Kerry Pines, M.S., Psychology/ABA 
Kerry graduated from The University of North Texas, earning a Bachelors of Science in Special Education and from Nova Southeastern University with a Masters of Science in Psychology and Advanced Applied Behavior Analysis. Kerry’s passion in working with children on the autism spectrum began when one of her sons was diagnosed with PDD-NOS.  When ABA was introduced to son, she made the decision to pursue her masters to better understand how to help him.  She spent the next 7 years working as a therapist, concentrating on social skills groups, 1:1 intensive therapy and emphasizing the importance of incorporating therapy in natural environments and providing parent education and training. In 2014 she and her fellow cofounders, proudly opened up Child’s Path to help service children on the autism spectrum by providing them with the highest quality of therapy by the most amazingly passionate and tenacious staff out there! Kerry is currently acting as the Chief Operating Officer and is excited beyond measure to be a part of making Child’s Path the best place to be!
