Andres Gallego, Head Therapist Trainer

Andres Gallego started working with Florida Autism Treatment Center since 2012 right after he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Florida International University. As an autism therapist he was able to provide direct treatment to many clients and work with families in multiple locations including center, school, and home based settings. While working within the field he learned from his colleagues and enjoyed the wonderful work environment which propelled him to continue growing within the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. A year later he acquired his certification and became a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst. As a BCaBA, Andres then became the head therapist trainer in the Kendall location where he was able to train new staff members who would later become new autism therapists.

In 2016 Andres earned his Master of Science degree in Psychology from Kaplan University and later acquired his certification and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. He is now currently a Clinical Supervisor at the Broward location of Florida Autism Treatment Center where he oversees verbal behavior, language acquisition and behavior reduction programs. Andres also consults internationally with clients overseas in South America where he is able to work with families through areas such as remote consultation.
