NHABA Executive Board

Current Executive Board

Ally Dube

President

Ally Dube is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who has demonstrated proven success with the use of a creative treatment approach to challenging behaviors. Ally has 15 years of experience, both in the field and as an Autism parent, and has worked with individuals of all ages with Autism, developmental delays, and a variety of mental health conditions. Ally's experience includes working with both adults and children with a wide mix of communication abilities.

Ally co-founded Compass Innovative Behavior Strategies, a multidisciplinary behavioral health provider for individuals with Autism and other developmental disabilities, in 2015 and is the Chief Clinical Officer. Compass has quickly grown into one of the largest ABA service providers in the state of NH, with 3 clinic locations across southern NH and approximately 80 employees. Compass has been recognized several times in the local media, including #1 Fastest Growing Family-Owned Business in 2018 (#3 in 2019) and the #1 Company to Watch in 2019 (BusinessNH Magazine). In addition, Ally serves on the faculty of Antioch University as an Adjunct Professor, teaching Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) coursework for graduate students pursuing board certification as a BCBA.

Ally is particularly passionate about mentoring graduate ABA students to teach them the “real world” skills of being a behavior analyst, and also working with families to teach functional life skills. Ally also enjoys advocacy and leadership training for legal issues with autism insurance funding and reform. In her spare time, Ally enjoys spending time in nature, hiking with her husband in the Monadnock region, reading and spending time with her four cats.

Ally’s vision for the role of NHABA President is to create a group of unique task forces to address many areas for advancing ABA in NH, including:

* Exploring pathways to the licensure of BCBAs in New Hampshire
* Developing a mentoring database of NH BCBAs, classified by areas of expertise
* Creating a resource library for ABA clinicians to address challenges within the field
* Analyzing the barriers in NH to providing effective behavior analytic treatment to consumers
* Starting a peer group for ABA business owners to address the ethical, financial, and legal challenges of starting and running an ABA service business

Vice President

Amy Rheaume

My main passion lies in training and supervision. What drives me is seeing the next generation of behavior analysts and behavior technicians growing and perfecting their craft as I grow as well. I have now worked for my non-profit agency for 18 years working with children from two years old to our adult population. One of my other passions is collaboration with other fields of practice. Our collaboration can only benefit our clients. Advocacy is my third passion and drives me to research insurance and education law to benefit those we serve here in NH.

Fourteen years ago, I was given the gift of my son who would later be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The experience of having a child with Autism has given me insight that I can apply in many different situations as I continue to advocate for the ABA community here in NH.

I have been a member of NHABA since conception and have volunteered at our annual conference each year. Being a part of this organization brings me joy and longing to increase our community’s presence here in NH.

Background:
* Masters in Special Education, Fitchburg State University
* Bachelors in Social Work and Counseling, Franklin Pierce University
* Licensed Applied Behavior Analyst in Massachusetts
* Board Certified Behavior Analyst since 2014
* Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst, 2006 – 2014
