B.A.
Fisk University, US

After earning her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Fisk University, Tameah worked as a behavioral aide for children with autism. She loved her job and it inspired her to become a registered behavior technician and earn a master’s degree in special education from the University of San Diego.

Tameah has had a range of experience, working for individual children who have special needs as well as being a resource for classroom teachers. She has helped children with autism to learn to socialize in peer groups and in the community. She has also provided classroom support for clients with ADHD and behavioral problems. In her previous capacity at ELG, she worked as a program leader, helping children in the full-time program to work towards their individualized goals by directly supporting their therapeutic learning, overseeing the rest of her program team, and working with other therapists to implement evidence-based, effective programming. She understands how full-time environments can be adapted to support different children’s needs from her direct work experience, making her a great resource for classroom teachers.

Tameah loves to watch children develop and to help them on their individual journeys. At ELG, she is passionate about having a mutual exchange between herself, her colleagues, and the families she works with; everyone supports one another to grow and learn.
