In Recognition of Your Advocacy, Commitment, and Promise

"In the 10 years since Pablo completed his Master's degree in Special Education with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis, he has established himself as a leader not only within the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders and the VKC UCEDD but also within Tennessee, contributing to a changed landscape for individuals with ASD and their families. In all that he does, he builds bridges to communities, the state, and nationally. Although his work has focused primarily on ASD, the models for training, service, research, dissemination, and community engagement that he has initiated or helped develop and implement also benefit individuals with other developmental disabilities and their families."
