John Wilson is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and certified Teacher of the Handicapped who has been working with students with autism for more than 20 years. He has worked in both public and private school settings, including Princeton Child Development Institute (PCDI). His experiences range from classroom teacher to ABA consultant.
Mr. Wilson joined the Y.A.L.E School in September 2012 as a behavior analyst for the Cherry Hill campus where he conducted functional behavior assessments, wrote individualized behavior support plans, and provided staff trainings. This summer, he became the Assistant Director of Y.A.L.E.’s Audubon campus.
“I am deeply committed to teaching our students concepts rather than just rote responses,” said Mr. Wilson. “This prepares them to be problem solvers. We are using evidence-based instructional approaches that will help students broaden their understanding so they can apply skills and knowledge across settings.”
Mr. Wilson earned his BA in special education and his Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis from Rowan University. In addition to his work for Y.A.L.E., Mr. Wilson serves as a part-time adjunct professor at Rowan University where he teaches an undergraduate course in Applied Behavior Analysis.
