Eli T. Newcomb M.Ed., BCBA, LBA
VP of Clinical Standards & Research
Eli Newcomb is the Vice President of Clinical Standards & Research at The Faison Center. His primary activities include oversight of the clinical approaches used across all service-proving departments and directing activities of the organization’s applied research laboratory. Eli's clinical activities and research focus primarily on transporting assessment and treatment procedures well-established within intensive service settings into less restrictive environments such as schools, outpatient clinics, and residential settings—with the underlying focus of keeping more clients in their home and local community settings while they access the services they need. He has published peer-reviewed research in the areas of learner preference, organizational behavior management, the assessment and treatment of severe problem behavior. Eli is an editorial board member for the Journal of Organizational Behavior Management and has taught behavior analysis and education courses at graduate and undergraduate levels. He volunteers locally and nationally with nonprofits and government agency workgroups adjacent to his expertise in specialized education and behavior analysis. Eli was also elected by his peers to serve on the Board of Directors for the Virginia Association of Independent Specialized Education Facilities (2013-present) and the Behavior Analyst Certification Board® (2016-2019).
