He started this company in 2006 and has worked both domestically and internationally to provide educational services to children and adults with behavior issues. In 2013, Dr. Pritchard launched our sister company, Lodestone Academy with the express purpose of filling a need for high quality behavior analytic services for folks suffering from severe behavior problems. He used his wealth of experience to structure the center programming and staff training to provide the highest quality of care to Orlando’s students.
In addition to clinical practice, Dr. Pritchard has published in multiple journals within the behavior analytic field on a wide range of topics from teaching verbal behavior to changing driving habits. Dr. Pritchard also serves as President of the Association for Science in Autism Treatment, has served on the Executive Council of the Association for Behavior Analysis International and was a member of the Supervision Task Force of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.
Dr. Pritchard’s passion lies in utilizing behavior analysis to enhance the education of students who are otherwise unable to be served by the standard educational practices. He fervently believes that disabilities and behavioral disorders should not mean education should not be provided. While the use of behavior analysis is certainly helpful in reducing problem behavior, its real power lies in the ability to best teach skills that will make the problem behavior unnecessary.
