Mary Cupp-McChesney, MS

Behavior Consultant

My name is Mary Catherine Cupp-McChesney. I hold my master's of science in special education, intense interventions from Purdue University. I have worked with adults, adolescence and children with disabilities for 16 years. My experience includes teaching students with moderate and severe disabilities in a self-contained public elementary school for 13 years. I have also worked with adults with disabilities in a group home and day program. And I round out my experience, providing respite care for teenagers in the home and community. I have worked with adults and children with autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, brain injuries and mild to severe mental retardation.
