Melissa Ludban, BS

Early Child Mental Health Consultant

I joined Alta in March of 2020, as an Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant. This includes working with children, their families, and the early care and education professionals with the focus to build the capacity of adults in children’s lives in order to enhance children’s social, emotional, and behavioral health.   Prior to this I worked as a special education teacher for children with autism, and also as a preschool teacher.  It brings me great joy to work with young children, become their advocate, guide them toward realizing their full potential, and help them overcome the developmental obstacles they face.  I obtained my first degree in 2003, in Prekindergarten education, and my next degree in 2013, in Family and Consumer Studies, both from Youngstown State University. I enjoy my time at home with my two wonderful children and dog and cats.
