Kristin Bayley: Clinical Director
Kristin started working in behaviour analysis in 1998, working for New England Center for Children, recognised as a global leader in education for children with autism and related disabilities. During her 4 years at NECC, she worked in the residential setting with adolescents and in home programs with preschool children. After completing her Masters in Applied Behaviour Analysis, she moved to London to work as a program consultant at TreeHouse School (now known as Ambitious for Autism), and became certified as a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst in 2003. Whilst at TreeHouse, she also led a team which opened an ABA specialist support classroom in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
After relocating to Sydney in 2007, she commenced her Masters of Speech and Language Pathology program at Macquarie University, finishing 4 years (and 2 children) later. Kristin has always been striving to achieve truly family centred practice, so she worked at The Shepherd Centre, renowned for it’s innovation in family centred practice with children with hearing loss.
She started TMB because she believes deeply in the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis and the significant positive impact it can have for children with ASD and their families. With TMB, she is hoping to offer a service that 1) provides effective programs of the highest standard 2) works closely with families to provide the support they need during their journey, and 3) educate parents, teachers and allied health professionals in the application of the principles of behaviour analysis in their daily practice.
To the Moon & Back has many meanings to Kristin. It means that a parent’s love for their child is boundless. It also means that when equipped with the right tools, there is no limit to what children and their families can achieve together.
