I Love ABA!

Welcome to my blog all about Applied Behavior Analysis!

This blog is about my experiences, thoughts, and opinions on ABA. My career as an ABA provider is definitely a passion and a joy, and I love what I do.

Blog Post #1: Welcome to I Love ABA!

Welcome to my Blog!

I'm a Behavior Specialist located in Atlanta, Georgia. I have been working in this field since late 2002. I am currently pursuing my BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) certification. I started this blog as a way to freely share tips, strategies, and resources with fellow ABA therapists.  However, anyone is welcome to visit my blog--educators, caregivers, individuals with Autism, Speech Therapists, etc.

When I first started working in this field I didn't know many other therapists, and it's hard to do this type of work with minimal professional support. I hope this blog will be a source of support for other ABA therapists and educators. 
I  recognize that some people are anti-ABA. Thats fine, and even if you are against ABA I hope you find something on my blog thats helpful to you.

 I am so passionate about ABA because I have seen how it can improve the lives of children and families.  I use ABA all the time to improve the lives of others. ABA isn't just for children with Autism. Behavior Analysts can work with animals, help businesses improve, or work with elderly persons.

Maybe you will read something on my blog that motivates you to enter the field of ABA. The demand for caring, professional, and qualified ABA Therapists is very great!


  1. Hi, I enjoyed reading your blog very much. I have been an ABA therapist for only about a year. I love ti very much although at times (or many times) it could be challenging. Thank you for sharing your thougths, skills and knowledge about ABA. I am always very nervous during group meeting because of my shy character but I know that it is important for the improvement and development of the child. Do continue to share more about ABA or any other therapy for ASD children and YA. Keep up the good work.


  2. Hi and thanks for leaving a comment! As you get more experience your confidence will increase, and you will feel more comfortable in those team meetings! Im glad you find my blog helpful :-)

    1. Hi, tks for the reply! Your blog is really helpful. Whenever there is team meeting i will be very nervous and will feel that I have not done my best. But i guess i need more experience to boost up my confidence.

      Tks and let's continue to help in whatever way we can for children and people with ASD :)


    2. You are very welcome! Your positivity will take you a long way in this field. We need more people who truly have hearts for these kids:-)
