What do you end up doing with those grants, anyway?

All of us at Easter Seals Bay Area are so proud of Michelle Ficcaglia, Jennifer Cowherd and Audrey Niblock for earning their Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) credentials. As a board certified behavior analyst, each of these professionals brings a wide breadth of experience and expertise to ensure that individuals and families affected by autism and other disabilities get meaningful answers and help.

Michelle Ficcaglia, who serves as the Clinical Director for Easter Seals Bay Area’s Autism Project, and Jennifer Cowherd, Program Manager for Easter Seals Bay Area’s award-winning Kaleidoscope After-School Program, were able to pursue their BCBA certification through a grant from CVS Caremark All Kids Can Program™, committed to supporting children with disabilities and promoting inclusion. Easter Seals Bay Area received the CVS Caremark All Kids Can grant for $20,000 in May of 2009, to strengthen local autism services through Professional Development in Applied Behavior Analysis. The grant was awarded to Easter Seals Bay Area in response to families’ need for greater access to autism services.

The expertise that each of these women bring to Easter Seals is invaluable to our exceptional team of professionals. All of us share our commitment to improving the lives of children in our community, and the CVS Caremark All Kids Can Grants enabled two of our top staff to obtain their BCBA credentials, which will help Easter Seals Bay Area continue to lead the way in providing critical services to those living with disabilities, in particular autism, in the Bay Area. Thank you, CVS, and congratulations Michelle, Jennifer and Audrey.
