LLA Spotlight: Hannah Lee

We have amazing therapists at LLA and want to showcase them to you! This week, meet Hannah Lee!

Hannah is a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) in the Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) department who has been with LLA for 1 and a half years! She serves clients at the Fairlawn clinic. She became a therapist because she always knew she wanted to help others in some capacity. When she graduated college, she found the amazing opportunity to work with kiddos in ABA! Her favorite part about being a therapist is being part of the growth the kiddos make and being able to celebrate each success. There is nothing better than celebrating an achievement with a kiddo and watching them light up with excitement and pride!

Share a success story!

One of my favorite success stories is about a client I started working with about a year ago. When we first met, they would only give 1 or 2-word answers and didn’t want to be around anyone else but their Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). After several months of working together, they started to go up to other kiddos and ask them to play firefighters or hide and seek. Now I’m always amazed whenever I pass by and they stop me to ask me what I’m doing or where I’m going and tell me about their day. Having the privilege of witnessing successes like these everyday is what drives my passion for therapy.

Let’s get to know Hannah better!

Describe your role at LLA:

I work one-on-one with the kiddos to teach them life skills to promote independence and help set them up for success.

What is your best advice for parents who are embarking on a journey with therapy with their kiddo?

Don’t forget to celebrate the little things! These kiddos are making strides every day so it’s good to take a moment to look at how far they’ve come and celebrate their achievements. Plus some of the kiddos just love having dance parties!
