Libby Caswell is the Founder and Executive Director of DASI Kids. Her profound understanding that every Autism journey is unique inspired her to create DASI Kids based on this fundamental principle.
She began her Behavior Analysis journey twenty years ago. Throughout that time she has had the privilege to support families of many demographics during their Autism journey and had the opportunity to work alongside colleagues that are considered instrumental in the growth and application of ABA Therapy as proven by the medical community today. Libby earned her Master of Science in Behavior Analysis from St. Cloud State University prior to becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in 2008. She specializes in Verbal Behavior, Natural Environment Teaching, Direct Instruction and Precision Teaching.
Libby continues to practice with the conviction that each family should receive an individualized approach and that each child must receive individualized treatment. She aspires to create an environment that fosters learning and development for each irreplaceable child, each committed parent and each effective teacher. Libby attributes setting new goals upon fulfilling an accomplishment, thriving on personal and professional growth, and surrounding herself with practitioners that accompany these beliefs as the passionate foundation for DASI Kids’ success.
Libby has successfully balanced a career and a family while becoming an entrepreneur. She maintains this delicate balance by enjoying the small gifts in life. Each day she returns to her country home with her family to care for her animals and enjoy some gardening. She is committed to self-care and enjoys her daily work-out, and she appreciates a fun travel experience with family and friends.
