Hilary McClinton, M. Ed, BCBA, IBA
Sleep Specialist, Behavior Analyst
Hilary lives in British Columbia with her partner and two kids. She spends her time supporting her kids school on their PAC, volunteering on the professional organization BC-ABA and getting out to with her family and friends to enjoy the beautiful surrounding community.
With just over 20 years in this field, Hilary’s early experience ranged from working in the educational system, supporting neurodivergent children with complex needs in a residential setting, and providing home-based services in her local community. The latter part of her career has pivoted to learn more about neurodiversity aligned practices, sharing that knowledge with trainees seeking certification and providing educational opportunities to the larger behavior analytic community.
Hilary divides her practice across a few specialties. She supports families with sleep issues, using an evidence based approach grounded in behavior analysis, behavioral sleep medicine and person centred planning. Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) is weaved through all of her services, supporting colleagues, parents and children in connecting to what is important to them. She also continues to provide early intervention, incorporating her training in Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) and neurodiversity aligned practices.
While she has been practicing as a Behaviour Analyst for many years, she still considers herself to be a learner – and unlearning is part of the journey, in an effort to to create inclusive and effective interventions.
