About Me

Carrie Sullivan is a Board Certificed Behavior Analyst, with a Masters Degree in Special Education, specializing in early intensive behavioral intervention for children with autism and maintains a private practice in Redwood City, CA.

With over 23 years experience in the San Francisco Bay Area providing behavioral services to children with special needs, Carrie Sullivan began her private practice in July 2015 to work more directly with families and children through direct service and consultation. These services and consultation can range from short-term services that address specific issues (e.g., transition issues, holiday/upcoming travel concerns, new behavior concern, toilet training) to long-term services (e.g., direct one-to-one therapy, providing consultation to the school/therapy team, attending IEP meetings).

Carrie's experience provides her with the unique skill set to be able to assess the areas of strength and need for your child, develop goals and a program to address these areas, and provide training directly to those who work with your child on those areas (e.g., yourself, caregivers, other professionals, school team).
