ABOUT US

When a parent or guardian hears a diagnosis for the first time, it can be difficult to hear. After the initial emotions wear off, many times the next step is finding resources that can help their child.

But, what happens when those resources just aren't there? Or when some of the resources are available, but they are spread out all over the area causing families to spend much of their time in the car? What about when parents read about all the resources available near a larger city, but not in their rural area? And if a parent is successful at finding resources, how well will they be able to collaborate if they are spread out all over a three-county area?

These questions speak to the heart of why Collaborative Care Behavioral Therapy (CCBT) was born in 2020. Our founder and CEO, Brittany McDonald, BCBA, saw the need in our area, not only for effective ABA therapy, but for so much more.

The future goal of CCBT is to offer comprehensive services to children and young adults - including ABA, speech, occupational, and physical therapies. We want clients to be able to receive all of the resources in one place so that true collaboration can happen between all of the professionals working with the clients. Our clients and their families can get some of their lives back by not having to travel all over West Central Ohio for services.

Presently, CCBT can offer home-based and school-based ABA therapy to clients in much of West Central Ohio. Until our practice can grow to what we see in our future, we are willing and able to collaborate with speech, occupational, and physical therapists to make sure that we are all working toward the same goals. We see that the success of our clients is greater when the entire therapy team, including all of the professionals and family members, can communicate and collaborate.

OUR TEAM

Brittany McDonald, BCBA, CEO, Owner

After graduating from The Ohio State University with a bachelor's degree in Psychology in 2013, Brittany was hired as a behavior technician and instantly fell in love with the field of Applied Behavioral Analysis. The passion she gained inspired her to further her education, and in 2018 she graduated from Ball State University with a master's degree in Applied Behavioral Analysis with a specialization in Autism Spectrum Disorders. Collaborative Care Behavioral Therapy was created out of a desire to bring much needed services to our rural area. In her spare time, Brittany enjoys time with her wonderful husband and daughter and learning all she can about gardening and homesteading.

Corrine Corbett, Administrative Executive

In the past, Corrine worked as a licensed optician and later had the opportunity to run her own photography business. In 2012, she hung up her camera to homeschool her six children, three of which are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. She has spent hours researching curriculum, funding sources, and resources relating to the special needs of her children. Because of her family's circumstances, Corrine brings a personal touch to the CCBT team and can relate to what parents are feeling when they reach out to CCBT for help. She is eager to make the process as smooth as possible for the families of our clients. Corrine loves date nights with her husband of almost 20 years, playing board games with her family, and coffee with friends.
