About Wynne Solutions
Our mission at Wynne Solutions is to provide an array of services using the techniques of applied behavior analysis (ABA) in home-based, clinical, and educational settings to meet diverse behavioral needs via face-to-face and tele-health methods. We aim to inspire hope and enhance daily lives by providing the best individualized treatment to children and adults using methods to change behavior in order to create a path for long-term wellness through collaboration between the child, family, therapy team, schools, community, and other field professionals.
Wynne Solutions’ vision is to provide services that enable children, adolescents, and adults to acquire many different skills to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior in order to achieve healthier lifestyles and positive outcomes. The primary focus of Wynne Solutions is parent education, using evidenced-based resources to support the parents and caregivers of individuals with behavioral needs in decreasing unwanted or challenging behaviors, and acquiring new behaviors in their place. Wynne Solutions' unique delivery model incorporates the most innovative, cutting-edge technology to teach to the new millennia. Wynne Solutions utilizes technology to keep individuals all around the world connected with the most effective and user-friendly resources to help with a variety of behaviors. Resources are defined as:
• one-to-one interface with Dr. Maria Gilmour and/or a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst
• access to evidenced-based resources
• education for parents and caregivers, allowing them to be the most effective advocates for their children
President and Chief Executive Officer
Dr. Maria Gilmour has been professionally working with families for the past 20 years. Dr. Gilmour is an educator and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst who has extensive experience consulting with parents and families, teachers, educational leaders and school administrators in both public and non-public programs for educating children and adults with special needs. She is well known for her creative approach to cross-disciplinary collaboration. Dr. Gilmour's core philosophy is that a child is most fully served when parents and family members, SLPs, OTs, PTs, MDs, primary educators, behavioral specialists and caregivers work together and blend their approaches to the specific needs of a child. While Dr. Gilmour has worked as a consultant for families and educational programs all over the world, her primary focus is to get resources to individuals in need immediately through telehealth methods.

She has served as a member of the steering committee for Effective Behavioral and Instructional Supports with Georgia's state Department of Education and has taught courses and seminars throughout the country focusing on language development, early literacy, behavioral supports and research design. Before developing her private practice and pursuing research, Dr. Gilmour worked for seven years as a clinical manager for the non-public agency STAR of CA Behavioral and Psychological Services. In addition to her current role as President and CEO of Wynne Solutions, Dr. Gilmour also works as Chief Clinical Officer of Gemiini Systems, a discrete video modeling program for individuals building language and social skills; Assistant Professor of Practice at Portland State University's Graduate School of Education; and head of the BCBA program at Portland State University.
