Congratulations to Christina Colon, Behavior Specialist
Christina Colon is the Achievement Center's first Behavior Specialist to obtain the new Pennsylvania State Licensure. The Autism Insurance Act of 2009 mandated that all professionals providing Behavior Specialist services to children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders under the age of 21 be licensed by the state of Pennsylvania. The licensure process began for Christina back in October 2012 and has been a lengthy and involved endeavor. Congratulations to her for being the first to successfully complete this process!
