Skill Acquisition

We are here to:

  • Learn via scenarios provided to identify functions of behavior.
  • Observe exceptional models in the field on what my sessions could look like.
  • Share conceptually systematic best practices and their outcomes.

I once was lost, but now I will:

Differentially reinforce my alternative behaviors to fumbling about in the practice of ABA by:

  • Identifying the needs of my clients using a data-driven approach
  • Searching for concepts on skills that I can improve on
  • Challenge myself to speak up when I am uncertain of a procedure or concept.

As long as you actively seek out new ideas and provide yourself with the space to grow, you will find applied behavior analysis extremely rewarding and your clients will too!

Good luck on your journey, practice culturally responsive ABA, and have loads of fun!

Many things have inspired me along the way, from the way that atoms interact to universal forces working in tandem to bring joy into my life. I arrived from Cuba at the young age of 6 years old, became a big sister to an exceptional little boy at the age of 13, went off to college as a first-generation college student, earned a Bachelor's degree in Biological Chemistry from Grinnell College. After graduating, I became a high school science teacher with Teach for America and taught for 5 years. While teaching, I earned a Master's of Science in Education and Social Change from the University of Miami and then studied at Florida Institute of Technology and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Currently I am loving my life as a BCBA where every day I learn new skills applicable in my practice and in my life.
