Our Team

 

Nirupama Madhavan - Clinical Director (Owner/BCBA)

Nirupama founded Famspring to share and spread her love for behavioral practices that help children become independent adults. She has experienced this first hand as a mother of a teenager who has received ABA for several years. Niru started her career as a software engineer at Microsoft and became a BCBA after completing her Masters at the University of Washington. She gained a wide range of experience working with a diverse set of individuals at the developmental preschool in the Experimental Education Unit (UW), children with comorbid medical conditions at Seattle Children’s Autism Center and teens and young adults in her previous position. She is committed to improving the independence and self-advocacy of her clients and is passionate about using technology to enhance the quality of their lives. Outside of work, Niru enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, hiking, watching movies and learning music.
