Presented by Dannielle Gonyea and Amanda Wilson

Amanda Wilson and Danielle Gonyea are Co-Founders of Navigating Behavior Change. Their primary goal is to assist educators in teaching and improving the lives of at-risk students who exhibit challenging behaviors. We know that true, long-term behavior change requires the participation of a team of adults. Therefore, we strive to provide high-quality support to teachers, administrators, school psychologists, behavior analysts, and other service providers. Both began their careers in the classroom and soon found behavior analysis as a solution to classroom learning issues.
