The purpose of this website is to help parents, educators, administrators, and support personel such as school psychologists, counselors, and social workers improve student outcomes for all students with particular interest in the individual student who presents unique challenges.
I specialize in emperically supported methods of school based assessment and intervention for social behavior and academic skills deficts. I Have over 15 years of professional expertise in ABA Therapy, Independent Functional Behavior Assessments, Individual Education Programs (IEP), Academic Intervention, and a host of School Based In-Service trainings and consultation services.
Maximizing a students potential can be a straight forward process, but it often requires more expertise and intensity than many schools may ordinarly be equipped or willing to provide. Improving the performance of individual students can be accomplished through emperical assessment focused on hypothesis testing, data based decision making, and systematic emperically supported intervention.
When it comes to developing an individualized educational program (IEP), it is critical to have the right professionals at the table. A free appropirate education does not mean you get everything you want, but it does mean your child gets everything they need to be successful.
To determine what they need it is critical that Behavior Intervention Plans (BIP) are based on sound Functinoal Behavior Assessments (FBA) and Educational Obejctives for academic skill deficits and learning disabilities be based on curriculum based evaluations (CBE).
