At Perspectives Corporation, we understand the importance of having a team of experienced and certified Behavior Analysts to help children with special needs reach their full potential.

Shannon's Inspiring Career Journey at Perspectives
Meet Shannon Ciccone, the Clinical Director of the ABA program at Perspectives Corporation. Shannon's journey at Perspectives began 19 years ago when she joined the Youth and Family Services Program as an entry-level Behavior Specialist on the ABA team in 2004. She quickly advanced to the position of Lead Therapist, and then promoted to bachelor's level Treatment Coordinator within two years.
During her time as a Treatment Coordinator, Shannon took advantage of the tuition reimbursement benefits and the flexible work schedule at Perspectives to pursue a master's degree in education through UMASS Boston. With the completion of her master's degree, she became a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and was quickly promoted to the position of Clinical Supervisor. In 2020, she became the Clinical Director of the ABA program at Perspectives Corporation.
"I'm extremely proud of our team of talented individuals...."
"I'm extremely proud of the exceptional treatment that our team of talented individuals delivers to families across the state of Rhode Island," Shannon said.
"I look forward to many more years at Perspectives Corporation not only improving upon my skill set as a director and clinician but also the skill set and service delivery of the entire ABA team."
