Professional Titles: BCBA

AAPC authors are qualified professionals in various disciplines, certified in their respective fields. But what do these certifications mean?

They provide training to both families and staff, conduct assessments, create behavior plans, and monitor progress to remedy undesirable behaviors and ultimately promote positive social development.

She just keeps saying it again and again and again. Make it stop. She has to stop. “JUST STOOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPPPP IIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTT!”

The scream came out of the blue, shocking me as much as it shocked everyone else. I couldn’t help myself. Debbie’s perseveration was never-ending. “No school on Monday!” “No school on Monday!” “No. School. On. Monday!” And then the hiccupping crying, followed by hugs and “I’m sorry, Mommy” and “I don’t like sighing.”
