CW’s Professional Team


Our team consists of one special educator for each group of eight students

Alicia Ritter, M.A., BCBA, Director

A complement of paraprofessionals is necessary to educate our students at a ratio of 1.5 students for each direct service staff member, additional paraprofessionals as needed to educate students who require a one-to-one ratio.

Our Director and Program Coordinators are fully credentialed special educators and several of our professionals are Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs).

We are positive and energetic; we love our work and our students; and we function as a true team, with a common mission to have our students learn as rapidly and as enjoyably as possible.
