Matthew R. Osborne M.S., BCBA, LBA


Director of Adult and Residential Services


Matthew Osborne’s first encounter with autism occurred while he was a college senior supporting a teenager with autism at a public high school. At that time there were very few options in the community for adults with autism, and he feared what would happen to his student when he “aged-out” of the public school system. Since then, Matthew has dedicated himself to developing effective, person-centered supports for individuals across the spectrum and across the lifespan.



Prior to joining Faison, Matthew served as the Director of Adult Services at the Virginia Institute of Autism in Charlottesville, VA, and created their Adult Academy. Additionally, he has held the roles of Lead Board Certified Behavior Analyst at Autism Home Support Services in Ann Arbor, MI, and the Director of Psychology at the Northern Virginia Training Center in Fairfax, VA.


Matthew received his M.S. in applied behavior analysis from the Florida Institute of Technology, and his B.S. in psychology from Florida State University. He is a Virginia-licensed Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and a member of the Association for Behavior Analysis International, the Virginia Association for Behavior Analysis, and the Association for Professional Behavior Analysts.
