Keisha Powell

CAS, Psychologist-Autism Specialist

Why did you choose your profession?

Maya Angelou stated, ” What you’re supposed to do if there is something you don’t like; CHANGE IT!” I chose my profession as I wanted to make a difference in the lives of persons diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). I wanted to change the way we provide services and the way in which we view persons diagnosed with ASD. I wanted to educate other professionals in creating better school and community-based programs ideal for our population. Above all, I wanted to advocate for a group of people who are gifted, warm, and a true pleasure to work with.

I provide services to tweens, teens, and adults diagnosed with ASD in meandering the social nuances we call life. In addition, I provide resources to professionals and families in understanding the diagnosis. My services are located on my website: www.powelltherapysolutions.com

What’s your favorite part about what you do?

My favorite part of what I do is working with the individuals diagnosed with ASD and their families; especially adults. I love talking about Autism and providing professional development training for professionals and caregivers.

How has your IBCCES training/credential helped you in your career?

Becoming a Certified Autism Specialist with IBCCES has helped me in more ways than one. Families feel assured that because I am a credentialed professional with a reputable and world-renown organization; their loved ones are receiving the quality care that is deserving of them. I also appreciate the updated information and training that IBCCES provides for continued growth as a Certified Autism Specialist.

How do you use/implement what you learned in the IBCCES certification training?

I use my training to assist my clients, empower my parents/caregivers and educate those who wish to learn more about providing quality services to individuals diagnosed with ASD.
