I have more than 5 years of experience in providing private ABA therapy, and was the lead teacher in an preschool ABA classroom for 3 years. I have worked with children ages 2-11, but mainly focus on early intervention with younger children (2-7ish). My methods consist of using positive reinforcement to increase positive, desirable behaviors, improve language and social skills and decrease any interfering behaviors, or inappropriate or harmful behaviors. I can work in a discrete trial setting or natural environment depending on the child's needs and the parent's requests, as a combination of the 2 usually work well. The most important thing is staying up-beat, positive, loving and understanding when working with a child while still remaining firm. I have found this produces the best results. ABA must be a positive experience for the child in order to produce positive results! I love each and every child I spend time with and have always developed a close relationship with the families for whom I work.
