We were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Alecia Ellis, an extraordinary teacher who worked closely with us in Clark County, NV. Alecia possessed an extraordinary blend of talents, having a broad background in Speech and Language and superior skills in Applied Behavior Analysis. Exceptional with children, she also excelled at training and supervising educational staff and intervention service providers. A testament to her impact on the lives of students is this feature which appeared in Speech and Language Forum.
Alecia was always a pleasure to work with; as amiable as she was inquisitive and sharp. Her love for her work was only exceeded by the size of her heart. Those of us who knew her are better at what we do, and as individuals, because she touched our lives. -MT
