Amberly Caballero is the Chief Executive Officer and Owner of Elevated Kids. Amberly oversees the clinical direction and vision of the company and provides ongoing clinical training, coaching, and supervision to clinical teams across PA, NJ, and NY. Amberly is also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and Licensed Behavior Specialist (LBS) who has worked in the field of ASD and developmental delays for over 19 years. Amberly has dedicated her career to early identification of ASD and the subsequent early start of effective, evidence-based intervention. In addition to a Master's Degree in Science of Education and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) from Temple University and Board Certification in Behavior Analysis, Amberly received post-graduate clinical training and certification in Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health (IECMH) from Widener University, a post-baccalaureate premedical certification from Drexel University College of Medicine, training in Naturalistic Developmental Behavioral Interventions (NDBI), including Project ImPACT (evidence-based NDBI program and parent coaching curriculum), and clinical diagnostic training at the Center for Autism Research (CAR) at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) in the ADOS-2 (Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition) to evaluate for ASD and help provide an accurate diagnosis to promote access to appropriate early intervention services without delay.
Throughout Amberly's career in evaluating and treating children as young as 12 months of age, identifying onset symptoms of ASD and the subsequent start of early intervention services, Amberly has experienced first-hand the maximum effects on children's developmental progress when appropriate intervention begins at the onset of developmental delays, and when the symptoms of ASD first begin to emerge. Recognizing the significant need for developmentally-appropriate and effective intervention for toddlers and young children diagnosed with ASD, Amberly started Elevated Kids in 2018 to provide the highest quality, most effective, evidence-based treatment available for families. Amberly's current focus is on advancing the understanding, dissemination, and implementation of ABA/NDBI for children diagnosed with ASD, as demonstrated through her commitment to research, applied work, systems of intervention across a growing organization, and the highest quality of care for families.
