Christine Laurent, BCBA, LBA

I am fortunate to wake up each morning to a job that I love and to go to sleep each night knowing that WEAP is committed to making a difference for so many clients and families.

Christine Laurent is the Clinical Director and a Behavioral Treatment Licensed Supervisor for the Madison Region. Christine started her journey working with clients with autism during a college internship in 1994 through Carroll University. Her undergraduate degree is in Psychology with minors in Biology and Sociology. She later went on to complete her Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis in 2014. Since her first client twenty-five years ago, she never looked back. She has been with WEAP for the entirety of her career.

Pamela Brown

I never take for granted the immense level of trust that families place in us when they choose to share the life of their child. It is truly an honor to be chosen as a family’s treatment provider.

Pamela Brown is the Administrative Director at Wisconsin Early Autism Project (WEAP) in Madison, Wisconsin. Pamela began her career as the co-owner of a small business which allowed her to remain home full time while raising her young family. Once her children were school-age, she pursued her passion for child development and early learning which led her to join the WEAP team in 2006. Pamela’s foundation with WEAP was built upon providing 1:1 therapy to clients for over 5 years. In 2010, she was presented with an exciting opportunity to re-pilot the trainer position at the Madison clinic. Following the successful implementation of the trainer position, Pamela chose a new path and joined the Madison WEAP administrative team in 2012. Over the next several years, Pamela filled multiple administrative positions within WEAP prior to becoming Administrative Director in 2018. As the Administrative Director, Pamela endeavors daily to support the needs of both staff and families while ensuring our team is consistently meeting the clinical and administrative standards which make us a leading treatment provider.

Erin Seiler, BCBA, LBA

It's extremely rewarding to watch our clients learn and grow, and to celebrate their successes along the way!

Erin is a BTLS and Assistant Clinical Director of the Madison Region. She did her undergrad at UW-Madison and never left. Erin started working at WEAP in early 2011 and has enjoyed working with so many wonderful clients, families, and staff. Erin earned her master’s degree in Special Education and soon after became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Outside of work, Erin loves baking, Starbucks, and spoiling her dog!

Michelle Sherman, APSW

My passion is watching children succeed and demonstrate that they understand social reinforcement/praise and are proud of their accomplishments.

Michelle Sherman came to WEAP with a variety of experience in social work practice and had direct experience treating adults on the autism spectrum. Michelle began her career working in a residential treatment facility/group home in Santa Clara, California from 1989-1993. She started as a case manager and advanced to a clinical supervisor and clinical director before she was promoted to program director.  

Michelle started working for WEAP in 1994 with Dr. Sallows and Dr. Graupner.  She trained at UCLA and was clinically supervised by Dr. Ivar Lovaas, Nina Lovaas, and the UCLA clinical research team. Since then, Michelle has been an integral part of WEAP, offering invaluable clinical guidance to clients, families, and clinicians in Wisconsin and internationally. She’s helped start up an autism center in Malaysia, clinically supervised in England, Canada and Australia, and been instrumental in beginning WEAP’s first social skills groups, play groups, teen groups, and sibling groups.  

Michelle currently serves as the family treatment guidance specialist. The treatment she provides families is modeled from a family-centered care treatment emphasis/focus. Michelle supports families in a number of ways, including parent training, general clinical guidance, mentoring, setting up services in the community, facilitating communication, and coordinating care with other agencies. She also supervises the social skill groups in Madison and runs the Janesville Learning Center’s teen and young adult social skills group.
