Collamer lands behavioral fellowship

WORCESTER — A local student at Worcester State University recently began a fellowship program at Behavioral Concepts Inc., a company of behavioral clinicians specializing in the care of children with autism in central Massachusetts. Carolyn Collamer of Dracut, a senior at WSU, attended a weeklong, comprehensive training for techniques, jargon and methods, as well as BCI-specific requirements. Training culminated in an exam that must be passed in order to begin child-specific orientation. Collamer will shadow staff for complete sessions with a variety of clients, implement skill-acquisition programs, implement behavior-management guidelines and/or behavior-support plans, collect and graph data on skill-acquisition goals, collect data on rates of behavior, and participate in weekly or biweekly supervision with a clinical coordinator.
