Michael E. Kelley, PhD, BCBA-D

Professional Experience

Dr. Kelley currently serves on the Board of Editors for The Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis. He is also a current member of the Board of Directors for the Society of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior. Dr. Kelley was the 2010 recipient of the American Psychological Association’s Division 25 B. F. Skinner New Researcher Award, and served as an Associate Editor of The Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis from 2009-2012 and on the Board of Editors for The Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior from 2013-2016.

Additional Duties

Dr. Kelley has served as an expert witness and consultant in the areas of Behavior Bnalysis, Autism Spectrum Disorder, developmental disabilities, program evaluation, severe behavior disorders, and pediatric feeding disorders. His clinical practice focuses on assessment and intervention for the symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder, both in vivo and via telehealth.
