Behavior Essentials Celebrates 7 Years

Behavior Essentials: Celebrating Seven Years of Empowering Families in Las Vegas and Reno"One of the greatest gifts in my life has been being able to support the 700 families I have connected with through Behavior Essentials in the last 7 years." —Behavior Essentials Founder, Casey Lynn Hayden.

Behavior Essentials recently reached a momentous milestone, celebrating its remarkable seven-year anniversary in July. As we reflect on this significant achievement, we are thrilled to introduce you to the incredible individuals who have made Behavior Essentials the success it is today. These exceptional individuals are the heart and soul of our organization, and we are excited to share their inspiring stories with you.

At Behavior Essentials, we consider ourselves immensely fortunate to have an exceptional group of individuals who not only support one another but also wholeheartedly dedicate themselves to serving the families we work with. Casey Hayden, the Owner of Behavior Essentials, is a highly skilled and experienced Board Certified and Licensed Behavior Analyst. With over two decades of expertise, Casey has been primarily focused on providing invaluable assistance to families caring for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

During the early stages of her career, Casey worked closely with children in their homes, delivering one-on-one support through Early Intensive Behavior Intervention programs utilizing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). As her skills and knowledge expanded, she transitioned into a leadership role as a lead interventionist and eventually became a behavior consultant for children with Autism. Casey's unwavering passion led her to a vision of working more closely with parents, empowering them to teach their children the essential skills required for success and fostering a joyful home life. This vision became a reality seven years ago with the establishment of Behavior Essentials.

Casey's exceptional leadership is complemented by an extraordinary and dedicated team of staff members. As the first point of contact for parents and caregivers seeking assistance from Behavior Essentials, Renée Knipper, our intake specialist, provides a compassionate and patient voice. Renee's unwavering dedication to helping families access the care they need is truly commendable and invaluable.

Additionally, Behavior Essentials is supported by three highly skilled behavior specialists. Desirae Wingerter, a Board Certified Analyst (BCBA), and Christopher Curler, also board certified and licensed, bring similar backgrounds to Casey, accumulating a combined 30 years of experience in Applied Behavior Analysis. Desirae not only plays a vital role in creating behavior plans and providing guidance to our families but also contributes as an integral part of The Collaboration Center Foundation, a notable non-profit organization in Las Vegas.

Heading our teams in both Las Vegas and Reno, Chris leads the charge in serving both urban and rural communities, including underserved regions such as Fallon, Elko, Yerington, Fernley, Spring Creek, and the Reno/Sparks area, with ABA services.

Finally, we extend a warm welcome to Tiffany Hamilton, our newest team member. With experience in the field since 2019 and certification as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT), Tiffany is currently pursuing board certification as a behavior analyst. As she works alongside our BCBAs and families at Behavior Essentials, Tiffany continues to expand her expertise and make valuable contributions to our organization.

Together, our team at Behavior Essentials is passionately committed to providing exceptional care and support to families in both Las Vegas and Reno. We believe that every child with Autism Spectrum Disorder deserves the guidance they need to thrive and create a more fulfilling home life. We wholeheartedly cherish the opportunity to serve our families at Behavior Essentials, and our ultimate hope is that their experience working with us is as rewarding as our unwavering dedication to what we do.

As an organization, Behavior Essentials takes immense pride in offering top-quality ABA therapy services in both Las Vegas and Reno. Our expertise and commitment to empowering families make us the go-to choice for individuals seeking ABA therapy and related services in these areas.
