Michelle Render, M.S. Ed., OCT
Senior Therapist

Michelle earned her Master of Science in Education at Medaille College after earning a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Psychology from York University in Toronto. In addition to being a registered teacher with the Ontario College of Teachers, Michelle has over 10 years of experience working in the field of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) with individuals with Autism, Apserger's Syndrome, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Downs Syndrome, and other developmental delays.

Michelle's philosophy is that learning is not a one size fits all approach. Her training and experience in working with individuals with disabilities helps her to create and implement individualized IBI programs that incorporate a combination of: Verbal Behaviour (VB), Discrete Trial Training (DTT), Direct Instruction (DI), and Natural Environment Teaching (NET).

After joining Toronto IBI in 2012, Michelle has been an invaluable clinical resource to the company and currently also acts as our intake coordinator. She meets with families as their first point of contact and is happy to answer all of your questions.

Michelle has met all of her requirements to sit for the BCBA exam. She completed her coursework through the University of North Texas and receiving her supervised hours with Toronto IBI. As the field of ASD treatment continues to evolve and the spectrum of diagnoses constantly change, Michelle's knowledge of school curriculum and philosophy of inclusion has been an invaluable contribution to our company's mission statement of individualized student treatment.
