About the Author
April MacPherson is a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who has provided applied behavior analysis (ABA)-based treatment to children and young adults with developmental disabilities since 2007. She currently serves as the Director of Clinical Services for California Psychcare’s Palmdale center. April spends her time supervising and mentoring her team of BCBA colleagues and staff who are looking to grow in the field of applied behavior analysis, as well supporting families in need in and around the entire Antelope Valley area.
April spent several years teaching kids how to ride horses and develop skills necessary for teamwork and equine-care before making the jump into the field of applied behavior analysis that primarily serves the ASD population.
Outside of work April enjoys spending quality family time with her husband and 2 kids in their home, which also includes 2 horses, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. Her family also loves to take hikes together whenever possible. April hopes to return to competing on equestrian drill teams and attending rock concerts again when her boys are a bit older and she has more time on her hands.
