We will focus on the behavior analytic content of the BACB Third Edition (most current) Task List. We will refine your verbal behavior as a behavior analyst. We will analyze concepts for application in your area(s) of clinical interest. We will conduct assessments (ABLLS, functional analysis), create IEPs, devise individualized behavior interventions, and develop skill-acquisition goals.

Costs

Possible sliding scale based on country of permanent residence. Possible exchange of work hours with our learners to decrease supervision costs. For more information, contact us.

About the Mentor

My experience in direct service and leadership roles will help you develop the problem-solving and analysis strategies you will need as a behavior analyst. I have worked as part of both small and large teams in school- and home-based ABA programs for children with ASD. My mission has been to provide science-based, state-of-the-art applied behavior analytic programs for children with autism (18 months to 17 years). I have provided intervention services to youngsters with ASD and their families since 1991 and have worked as a behavior analyst since 1997. I became a BCBA in 2003 when I completed my Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis from Columbia University. Leila Farshchian, M.A., BCBA
