Do you have a child in your life who struggles with difficult or inappropriate behaviors? Maybe you have a kid in your classroom who constantly yells out, or your little one makes a big To-Do about bedtime EVERY night! Help is on the way, and it is called ABA! Applied Behavior Analysis is a rapidly growing psychological field that works on the very simple assumption that our behaviors are shaped by what happens in our surrounding environments. ABA has been found to be effective with people from all walks of life, but particularly for younger individuals on the Autism Spectrum. With my service, I offer you a 30 min phone consultation in which we can discuss a particular behavior a kiddo in your life is exhibiting and some possible methods for confronting it, or simply a discussion in which you can learn more about the principles and practices of ABA! NOTE: I am NOT a BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) but I do have a great deal of experience working with kids on the spectrum and with the principles/practices of ABA.
Training & Qualifications
I am a graduate of Fairfield University with a B.A. in psychology. Courses taken for the completion of this degree included Learning and Applied Behavior Analysis, Biological Bases of Behavior, and Neuroanatomy and Behavior.
I was previously an intern at the New England Center for Children, a nationally-recognized school for individuals with autism. The New England Center for Children utillizes ABA as the core of all of its intervention techniques, and I was able to gain first-hand experience working with the students there utilizing these techniques.
In my current job, I often work one on one or in small groups with children on the Autism Spectrum. I continue to utilize the principles of ABA in my everyday interactions with these kids.
