About us

Compassionate Therapy for Autism consists of a team of behavior interventionists lead by Roxana Nedelcu, who is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) with a PhD in Psychology. The staff in our team are completing their BA and MA’s respectively in psychology,  education, and art therapy and are of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Our team works on building  essential language, communication, play,  social, and academic skills.

Roxana Nedelcu has  18 years of experience in  working directly with children with autism as an ABA therapist and 14 years of experience working with parents and teachers.

In spite of having worked with  children  and their loved ones for many years, our team continue to feel amazed by each child’s candor, humor, and their unique constellation of strengths and weaknesses. They also continue to be amazed by the strength of each family they’ve coached and their willingness to do the hard work required to expand their children’s experiences and skills.

Roxana Nedelcu  has also been an instructor of psychology and behavior analysis  for the past 10 years. She taught courses in child development, psychology, and behavior analysis at Queens College, in NY and in supervision at Ball State University.
