Matt has dedicated his professional career to developing innovative programs for individuals with disabilities. He has worked as a special education teacher, behavior analyst and administrator. He is also a speaker and consultant working at the local, national and international level. McAlear’s major professional interest centers on the therapeutic and educational needs of young children with autism spectrum disorders. He is dedicated to providing empirically based interventions at what he sees as a critical juncture in a child’s life.
“One of the few things everyone in the disability community agrees on is the value of early intervention — the earlier the better,” McAlear says. “Early and intensive intervention can have a profound impact on the quality of life for both children at risk and their families.”
