Founders & History

Our story begins with our founders, Billy Edwards, Carla Edwards, and Lori Russo who met at the University of North Texas where they earned their Master’s Degrees in Behavior Analysis and following graduation became Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs).

Their education, training, and passion for helping children and their families guided the vision to create DFW’s first office-based consultation services in the year 2000. Based on the needs of the community, in 2003 Behavioral Innovations expanded services to include a site-based treatment program.

Since that time, Behavioral Innovations has become the premier choice for treatment and has numerous locations across the states of Texas, Oklahoma, and Colorado. Behavioral Innovations has, and continues to be at the forefront of insurance changes. As a result, our growing team includes dedicated personnel such as the admissions, insurance, billing, operations and experienced clinical staff.

The leaders at Behavioral Innovations continue to look for new and cutting edge ways to serve our clients while staying true to the founders passion to translate evidence based services into changing lives of children and families.
