Alfredo Montiel, M.A., BCBA
Founder & CEO
With over 15 years in the field of ABA and a love of learning, Alfredo Montiel created and developed Ad Astra Behavior Analytic Services with the idea of blending Applied Behavior Analysis with other sciences, specifically S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The concept of Ad Astra BAS was born many years ago when Alfredo noticed a significant disconnect in the utilization and knowledge of current technology within most ABA companies. This is not meaning the use of the latest and greatest high tech equipment but more so in understanding how current technology trends deeply impact the individuals and families we work with.
Although the majority of our services are based on a medical necessity, the educational concepts of S.T.E.M. also play a key role with long term individual independence and accessibility to resources. Ad Astra BAS strives to incorporate these concepts, when optimal and ethical, within its practice of behavior analysis in order to produce long term individual changes beyond tomorrow!
On his spare time, Alfredo enjoys spending time with his wife and two young daughters. He enjoys creating and building various play activities and structures for his kids and showing them how things work.
