Behavior analyst and therapist for Central California Autism Center

Behavior research and behavior change for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders


  • Behavior research assessing how problem behaviors are functionally maintained by prompts and reinforcers in one's environment
  • Collecting and analyzing behavior data to see what behavior change protocols are working and what should be reassessed and changed
  • Behavior change therapy one on one, and in classroom settings, to help decrease aggressive or harmful behaviors, develop language, and get children into mainstream schools
  • In-home behavior consulting teaching parents how to execute behavior change protocols and safely handle their child's aggressive or harmful behaviors

Things I learned from this project:

Honing my inner 5 year old imagination and creativity - thinking on the fly

Behavior analysis and modification techniques to apply to … everything

Deep empathy and understanding of humans who are outside of the norm

The art of extreme multi-tasking

Central California Autism Center is located at Fresno State University and is an early intervention program for children with warning signs of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) or a diagnosis of ASD. For 3 years I worked as an assistant supervisor doing behavior analysis and modification therapy with children between the ages of 18 months and 13 years.
