I am a practicing BCBA and use all of the materials that I put on here myself, every day! 6 years and growing of direct working experience in schools and private companies providing education, counseling, and special instruction. I began specializing in School Counseling for middle and high schools, and then moved in to special education for younger ages.
Making the absolute most of positive reinforcement and praising every little step along the way. Each tiny improvement adds up to a whole new skill or idea that was never there before, whether it be emotionally or academically.
Every day brings it's own rewards. To have a student reach that next step or level and have that open up a whole new world of capability is a measure that goes beyond anything else. That's an award I see worth trying for every day.
I began with an emphasis in Psychology with a B.A from the University of Delaware, continued on to a Masters in Education with a focus on School Counseling, certification and practice in Secondary Education in high school and middle schools, and then post-graduate work in Applied Behavior Analysis completing a graduate certificate and professional certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst from the BACB.
I am currently working in Pennsylvania ,and am constantly creating original instructional material that I hope can help others just as much.
