Currently accepting students for advisement in the M.S. program in Applied Behavior Analysis for Fall 2023. Please email me at jseaver@necc.org if you are interested in me serving as your advisor for Fall 2023. 


I began working with individuals with autism spectrum disorder almost 19 years ago when I started as a teacher at The New England Center for Children (NECC) in Southborough, MA. During my time at NECC I have worked to assess and treat severe problem behavior, severe skill deficits, and problematic sleep patterns. My current research projects are in the area of verbal behavior, and I am also interested in developing strategies for long-term treatment and elimination of problem behavior, as well as research in the area of organizational behavior management and generalization of skills.
