Advancing Understanding and Raising Awareness in Our Community and Beyond
Advocating for our clients, through education and awareness activities in the broader community, is an ongoing mission for Potential. Here are just a few recent ways in which our team members have been serving the autism community:

- “Improving Interactions Between Police and People with Autism,” written by Kristine Quinby, was featured in the Spring 2021 issue of Autism Spectrum News.
- In April, Jordan Hulas, BCBA, Program Coordinator, talked with Rider University about his decision to attend the school and how it prepared him for his career with Potential.
- Tanya Hough, MS, BCBA, Adult Program Coordinator, and Karen Yosmanovich presented their poster, “Don’t Train and Hope: A Model for Staff Development,” at ABAI 2021 in May.
- In a feature by Rider University, alum Kristine Quinby reflected on how her college experience and internships led her to become the founder and CEO of Potential.
