Veronica Glickman, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Autism, Behavioral & Educational Services, Inc. (ABES), has dedicated her professional career to working with kids and adults with autism and their families.
Veronica began working with the adult population as an undergraduate student at Adelphi University in Long Island, NY, while working toward her Psychology degree by providing vocational training and placement. Since that time, Veronica earned: a Master of Arts Degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of Hartford; a Master of Science Degree in Organizational Psychology from Alliant International University; and a Certification in Applied Behavior Analysis from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
Veronica’s experience spans from early childhood (18 months) through adulthood. She has created and supervised in-home and clinic-based ABA programs across the country, set up classrooms, trained professionals, and was an administrator in a therapeutic day school. Veronica also mentors and supervises students studying applied behavior analysis.
Veronica’s twenty-year-plus tenure spans across four states: New York, Connecticut, California and Illinois. Upon diagnosing and recommending behavior analytic services in Illinois, Veronica found that there was a lack of service providers and ABES, Inc. was born.
Veronica has been invited to speak on many radio talk shows regarding autism awareness and autism and safety. Recently, she co-authored a chapter named Inclusion is a Matter of Life and Death. More Than We Realize. Veronica’s current interests include medical necessity for ABA services, working with insurance companies, and the legal aspect of when services get denied by insurance companies.
