Dr. Sarah King, Ed.D., BCBA

Dr. Sarah is a board certified behavior analyst and received an Ed.D. in educational leadership and professional practice from Trevecca Nazarene University. She also earned a M.S. in education from The University of Tennessee and a graduate certificate of Applied Behavior Analysis at Cal State University San Marcos. She spent several years teaching special education and holds teaching certifications in special education and general education. Her eight years of experience in the K-12 classroom include serving students with a variety of mild to severe disabilities, with an emphasis on autism. Working as an early interventionist with the birth to three population has given her a valuable perspective, as well. She has been working as a developmental education and behavior specialist since 2012. In that time, Dr. Sarah has provided ABA therapy, social skills training, parent education, and behavior consultations to children and families with autism, ADHD, processing disorders, and other disabilities and challenges. Starting The TEACH Group in 2015 has enabled her to follow her dream of making a difference in the lives of children and families.

Dr. Bill Allen, Ph.D.

Dr. Allen has a doctoral degree from UTK in school and community psychology, with post graduate training in developmental psychology.  He has long been fascinated by how children learn, and how we can facilitate learning.   Dr. Allen has been in practice over 30 years working with learning disabilities (including dyslexia), social difficulties (including autism spectrum), and behavioral difficulties (including ADHD, and problems with frustration tolerance and temper). Most of his time is spent conducting learning evaluations and consulting with parents, but he also engages in some types of therapy with some children and their families, and spends a little time working with educators to individualize programs.
