Jenifer Clark received her master's in psychology from NYU and is completing her Ph.D. in clinical psychology at CUNY. She has worked as an ABA consultant and therapist since 1992. She specializes in working with children with autism and has taught atypical development at Hunter College. Currently she is the director of Boost!, an afterschool program for children with autism focussing on socialization and leisure skills for children on the spectrum, incorporating typically developing children as peers and social models. Ms. Clark is also the co-founder and therapist for SibFun, a support group for siblings of children with special needs. She consults at special needs and typical schools, and continues to consult with children and families.

Ms. Clark's presentation will focus on her hybrid approach to treatment entitled MERIT, which utilizes traditional ABA therapy and incorporates other more developmentally based approaches to address emotional and mental development. Refreshments will be served.
