Sinéad Lynch is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) based in Chicago. She grew up in the northwest suburbs and only recently moved into the city. She received a Bachelor of Science in psychology from Loyola University of Chicago. During her undergraduate career she spent a semester studying abroad at University College Cork in Cork, Ireland. She earned a Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology where she defended her thesis on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to increase Behavioral Skills Training (BST) effectiveness.
Sinéad has experience working with autistic individuals between the ages of 2-21 across clinic, home, therapeutic school, and community settings. While she has experience working with a vast age range, she especially enjoys working with children. Her favorite part about being a BCBA is experiencing all the individual milestones along with her clients and their families. There are so many milestones both big and small to celebrate in one’s lifetime; she wishes she could be there for them all!
In her free time, Sinéad can be found running the lakefront or curled up with a good book!
