Sheri Homishak, O.D., BCBA

Sheri is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst with over 15 years of experience designing and supervising individualized treatment plans for children and adolescents with autism. She received a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology at Harding University and a Doctor of Optometry degree at Northeastern State University College of Optometry in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

After 7 years of full-time practice as a Doctor of Optometry, Sheri began her career in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in 2000 when her two young sons were both diagnosed with ASD. When her sons were diagnosed, ABA services weren't available in Arkansas—Sheri had to contract with a consultant from South Carolina for in-home ABA therapy. Based on the amazing progress seen in her own sons and a newfound passion for working with children with ASD, she soon became instrumental in helping local families implement home programs with their children. Sheri eventually relocated to South Carolina to access better services for her sons and to study under the very ABA therapists that had helped them.

In South Carolina, Sheri received extensive training and mentorship in Applied Behavior Analysis and autism through the Early Autism Project, Inc. She then went on to complete post-graduate work in Applied Behavior Analysis through the Florida Institute of Technology and become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Returning to Arkansas in 2011, Sheri began working in a Developmental Treatment Center to design and implement ABA programming for preschoolers. Prior to joining AIM Clinics, Sheri served as the Autism Program Manager for Temple Memorial Rehabilitation Center in Texarkana, TX, and as a Consultant for the Arkansas Autism Waiver Program.
