Amanda Kelly was a critical person on my son's therapeutic team. She understood that building a bond and relationship with the child was vital to achieve effectiveness in his treatment. She was astute, caring,, and passionate about helping him, and helping us as a family. She had the most sophisticated approach, and the most knowledge regarding behavior of any of the therapists that have worked with my son.
Amanda worked with my child up in Massachusetts. She was compassionate, professional, and extremely knowledgable in her field. My son is a high functioning young man with autism and Amanda played a key role in his early development.
Dr. Amanda Kelly is magical. She came into our lives when things were pretty chaotic in our family. Amanda arrived with wisdom, wit and no worries. She has the ability to speak to adults, adolescents and little children with a caring and consistent way. She is extremely professional and results-oriented. As a parent of an adolescent with ASD, you are sometimes in the very vulnerable position of having to trust outside professionals. Dr. Kelly was easy to trust. She has changed our lives, forever. I recommend Dr. Amanda Kelly and her services 100%.
I highly recommend Dr. Kelly's services - in my experience, her insight into the behavior of children at both ends of the spectrum is unmatched. She is the consummate professional who treats her clients with the utmost respect and works closely with parents to find what works for each individual child. There is no one I would rather have working for and with my family!
While pursuing her Doctoral Degree, Amanda became the Coordinator of ABA Services at the SEEM Collaborative. Amanda began to restructure the department in order to provide students with the best services in the most efficient manner. She started a training and staff development program open to anyone who would want to attend. She also began bringing in staff with a high level of skill and expertise to meet the growing demand of SEEM services. When I was presented with a summer opportunity to work for Amanda at SEEM, I jumped at the chance.
Amanda was very helpful to me while I worked in the summer program at the Shamrock School in Woburn, MA. She helped me to find the best way to help the teachers in the program manage and instruct the children in the program. She was always available for assistance and to answer any questions that I had. I strongly feel that one of Amanda's best attributes as a supervisor is her positive attitude. She knows how to motivate her staff and provide useful feedback.
