reviewing coursework to make sure that I am current with evidence related practices. I believe this will help me to succeed as a BCBA. I will apply the evidence and data into my treatment planning, intervention and assessments. I would love contribute to the larger community by teaching parents how to use ABA in their homes with their children. I will teach them the methodology and how to take data and to implement behavior interventions. According to Career Paths in Psychology ”School psychologist, as well as BCBA, are trained in behavior analysis and interventions to serve as behavior specialists, consultants and autism specialists while conducting behavior assessment and developing, implementing and supervising behavioral and academic interventions” (p. 478, Sternberg, 2017). Making referrals when needed to other professionals and being aware of children’s deficits is essential as well and identifying stressors and implementing the right tools towards behavior. Additional contributions as a professional in my area of specialty will be to do team collaboration with other professionals to improve quality of services in ABA. As a therapist, we do collaborations weekly with Occupational Health, Speech therapist , Nutritionists and Physical Therapy. It is very important to include the identification a child and the parent’s expectations by providing training and support with other professional health providers. For example, school psychologists commonly serve on multidisciplinary teams for students with autism and emotional disturbance (p.478, Sternberg, 2017). References

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
