Lis(a) Swihart, MS CN

Noetic Health LLC
Behavior Specialist
Seattle, WA
Lisa Swihart, nicknamed Lis ("leese) by her co-presenter, has worked in the field of behavioral health since 2002. Her passion with working with individuals with neurological differences or disabilities stems from her belief that people see possibilities and limitations in their lives based on voices of others that either empower or limit them. Lis works to challenge others' perspectives on disabilities and differences to help expand the understanding of what is truly possible with each individual person in each unique setting.Lis spent 7 years working as a behavior specialist focusing on non-verbal, aggressive youth that were selected to receive support through Washington State's CIIBS program. Her success at developing behavioral plans that worked to increase joy and inclusion by using a systems based approach to assessment, allowed her the opportunity to give an oral poster presentation at the The XI Autism-Europe International Congress held in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2016. She served youth as an advocate during IEP meetings to ensure that school districts were truly providing students with disabilities a truly free and appropriate education, and following Washington's Administrative Codes.If you want to discover more about your thoughts that limit or empower you and learn how to shift your thinking, speak with Lis and attend her break out session where she and Michael Rogers will shine light on what is possible when limiting beliefs are challenged.
