Dr. Holly Gover has been applying the principles of applied behavior analysis with children and adults with and without disabilities for over eight years, and has been implementing the Practical Functional Assessment (PFA) and Skill-based Treatment (SBT) to address severe problem behavior and mealtime problem behavior for the past four years under Dr. Hanley’s supervision.
She received her Masters of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis at California State University, Northridge under the advisement of Dr. Tara Fahmie. She received Ph.D. in Behavior Analysis at Western New England University. She has taught courses as a faculty fellow at Western New England University, and she has led projects on the assessment and treatment of food selectivity and refusal within the outpatient Life Skills Clinic at Western New England University.
In addition to severe problem behavior, Holly conducts trainings, including implementation support, on the assessment and treatment of food selectivity. The protocol she developed with Dr. Hanley is a hands-off process, that allows the child autonomy within a therapeutic model.
