I feel honored to have been educated in the science of behavior change. I enjoy sharing and applying these scientific principals with others. I also love to see the amazing results that are achieved. Countless times I have witnessed the improvements that Applied Behavior Analysis has produced in the lives of individuals, their families, friends and teachers. Each time it has been spectacular and has left an imprint on my heart.

Philosophy of Care

I believe that every child deserves a chance to grow and to learn. I have a brother with special needs and learned at a young age how to work with children with disabilities and medical needs. This is why I am an advocate for children with disabilities, for those that cannot or do not know how to speak up for themselves, and for those that just need a little more patience and attention. Making a difference in the lives of children and their families makes working in this field rewarding.

Tara Humphrey

Associate Clinician
MA, BCBA
Years Working in Field: 4

In my early years, I had my first exposure to Applied Behavior Analysis. I wanted to be a teacher. I was working as a Nanny with a child that has Autism Spectrum Disorder. Their sibling had a developmental disability. I eventually changed my undergraduate major from English to Psychology. ABA was in its early stages where I lived, at that time. I later worked as a tutor and study coach at Wright State University. My early experiences helped to shape the skills that serve me, today. I started here at Trumpet as a Behavioral Skills Therapist. I gained experience working with children from the ages of 3 to 20. I eventually became a Registered Behavior Technician and now I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). I am happy to expand my role here at Trumpet and look forward to serving more families in the future.

Education

M.A. in Applied Behavior Analysis, Ball State University, 2016
B.A. in Psychology, Wright State University, 2013

Philosophy of Care

Soon after joining Trumpet Behavioral Health, I found this was the field that offered me the opportunity to put all of my experience and passions together! I love that ABA is the meeting of Psychology and Education. I decided to pursue a Master degree in Applied Behavior Analysis. I love working with the different children on individualized programs. I love the fact that I help children learn skills, reduce problem behaviors and increase communication. I love that ABA increases access and inclusion to the community. I love that ABA works on behaviors that are socially significant and important for each family.
I want to help fulfill the potential of each child that I work with. I believe that Dr. Temple Grandin said it best,
“There needs to be a lot more emphasis on what a child can do instead of what he cannot do.
