Philosophy of Care

I minored in early intervention and eagerly looked forward to working with young children with disabilities. I was lucky enough to stumble upon a beginning company that took to time to teach and train me in the practice of Applied Behavior Analysis.  The field suited me so well, that I began master’s degree in Early Childhood Special Education that morphed into specialization of Autism through a grant program.  All the while, I continued to work with young children with autism.  I moved through various agencies, in South Carolina and California, gathering new skills in a range of teaching methods.    When it comes to my client, I look to grow the potential of each client through the ABA teaching methodologies that will suit him or her best.  My first goal is to work toward the client’s maximum level of independence, while making his or her family unit stronger. I want to work with families to achieve their goals for their child and recognize all success, regardless of size.

I began working with children with disabilities in my last year of undergraduate education at the University of Nevada, Reno. Initially I had taken a course for the purpose of fulfilling my degree requirements, however, little did I know that that experience would change my life forever. Shortly after being introduced to the field of behavior analysis I knew what my calling in life was and knew I wanted to work with individuals with developmental disabilities and their families to teach them the skills they needed to give them the lives that they deserve! Following my experiences in that course I entered a graduate program at the University of Nevada, Reno and received training in many different areas. Since that time I have had the opportunity to work with individuals diagnosed with an array of different behavioral issues in a variety of different settings (in their homes, preschools, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and everything in between). I received my masters degree in Applied Behavior Analysis in May 2014.

Education

M.A. in Behavior Analysis, University of Nevada - Reno, 2014

Philosophy of Care

I am thankful every day for having the opportunities to interact with extraordinary individuals. I am moved every day I work with children and their families because they are learning and using skills that help them to be successful for the rest of their life. I love that there are no hidden secrets around the science of behavior analysis; all of the cards are laid on the table for everyone to see. If someone has a question about a particular procedure, a rationale will always be provided. I love that everyone is involved in the treatment (children, parents, practitioners, etc.) to openly discuss goals that are important to, and to work on those goals as a team. No one person gets the credit for successes, but the lives of individuals receiving treatment are changed for the better each and every day.

I have been with the company since fall 2011. A year after being with the company I fell in love with ABA and began studying towards my graduate degree in Behavioral Analysis, and will graduate in July 2014. Working with children has always been my passion, but Autism has a special place in my heart. I began working with special needs children in 2009 as a caregiver. Soon my paths lead me to ABA and my experience continues to grow with in school and home settings. Being bilingual in English and Spanish has come to great benefit here in the East Bay, and I look forward to more years to come.
