Red Hill, PA – Dr. Kimberly Rehak is a certified behavior analyst and co-founder of the International Institute for Behavioral Development, an organization which has provided many different types of services throughout the years. Formerly, one of the responsibilities of the organization was to help design learning environments and to help implement services where children and adults could thrive. IIBD provided educational, psychological, and behavioral health and support services.

Dr. Rehak holds doctoral degrees in special education, education, and behavior analysis, in addition to graduate level degrees in clinical and counseling psychology, with a concentration in addictions. She is a member of many professional organizations, and she has worked in educational, community-based, home, and clinical settings, as well as the juvenile justice and justice system.

“If a child is only acting out in response to instructional demands in a certain setting, we can determine what the triggers are and help teams ensure necessary supports are put in place,” says Dr. Rehak. “If all things are wonderful for that learner, but they're still engaging in problem behaviors, that would indicate to us something else is going on that could be medical.”

According to Dr. Rehak, too often the group dynamic of a classroom or other environment is prioritized over one student’s or client's individual needs, among other factors. Those professionals trying to do what is right for everyone involved should not have their efforts impeded or disrupted.

“It's the elephant in the room,” says Dr. Rehak.
