Keelee Burtch, PhD BCBA

Executive  Director and Co-Founder

Dr. Burtch has been in the field of developmental disabilities for  over eighteen years, she has a Masters of  ARts in Special Education, a Doctorate in Philosophy in education and Human Resources, and is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Dr. Burtch spent the first seven years of her career in public schools as a special education teacher, autism specialist, and eventually a district special education administrator. She eventually left public education for higher education where she was an Associate Professor of Special Education. She wrote and developed a four-course certificate program in autism intervention strategies for teachers. Dr. Burtch opened a private practice in 2008 that focused on in-home behavioral therapy for children and adults with developmental disabilities. The practice grew throughout Colorado and was acquired in 2011 by a national behavioral health organization where she remained the Regional Operations Director until 2012 when she accepted a leadership position at a local non-profit. After four years in non-profit management, her entrepreneur spirit was ready to venture into private practice again. She dreamed of providing quality behavioral services as well as offering respite care and community access for people with developmental disabilities. Dr. Burtch is a member of Association of Behavioral Analysis International (ABAI), Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), Four Corners Association of Behavioral Analysis, and Colorado Applied Behavioral Analysis Association (COABA). Dr. Burtch is a past treasurer of the Colorado Coalition of Autism Professionals (COCAP). Her research area is in the supervision of paraprofessionals working with people with developmental disabilities, language development for children with autism, as well as organizational behavior management. Dr. Burtch has three sons. She loves spending time with her family, traveling, golfing, watching football, and running.
