Amaka Seldon graduated from the University of Houston with a bachelor of science in Education and a minor in Interdisciplinary studies. Her time at the University of Houston Downtown set the tone for her work ethic and her career path. She received her masters from Kaplan University in Psychology with a specialization in Applied behavior Analysis.

Amaka has always had a passion working with children and young adults. After her bachelors degree, Amaka was determined to further her education by completing a masters program. During her masters study, she interned at various clinics, schools and facilities that specialized with children, young adults and adults with autism and developmental delays. That internship program/period sealed the deal and Amaka has never looked back.

The milestones that each child meets and/or exceeds is the driving force for Amaka. Over the past 9 years Amaka continues to enjoy working in the field of ABA and has realized that it takes a village to raise a child.
