  1. Thank you so much for all of your resources! I just stumbled onto your blog and have been here for about an hour now. Thanks so much :)
    JW- Massachusetts

    1. I also just stumbled onto your blog and have been here almost an hour! I have been practicing DIR/Floortime for the past 6yrs, and because, as you mention, once size does not fit all, am just now working on an Advanced Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis. Thank you so much for access to such helpful resources, wonderful insights, and clearly presented information! Your blog is helping me realize that much of the negative comments/experiences I have heard about in the past are the result of bad ABA practices. Thanks again!

    2. Hi there,

      That is the best comment ever :-) I love that you are warming up to ABA and seeing the value in the strategies and methods. Yay!

  2. your book and your resources have helped my day program tremendously! thank you so much your very inspiring

  3. WoW! so helpful!!!! thank you! YOU'RE AMAZING!

  4. Wow!its great!!thank you

  5. Proud of ya! Your blog has come a long way and it truly is great. Hope all is great! -Stacie

  6. Thank you.Right now i am a mom acting as a temporary ABA implementer who has so many questions that i feel my daughter's behavior analyst will loose her patience soon .

    Well i Came across your blog and the information you are sharing are really very very useful.

    1. I have worked with several "parent ABA therapists" and I know how frustrating and difficult it can be. Im glad the information here is helpful to you, and to your daughters therapy!

  7. Wow! Very informative website. Excellent work! I'm nearing the end of my BCBA coursework and masters degree and your website has been extremely valuable to me. Thanks.

    1. Hi Darnell :-)

      Good luck with your certification, and I'm glad the blog has been helpful for you!

  8. Thank you so much for posting all of the resources. It is very helpful and saved me a ton of research!!


    1. Hi Kim!

      You are welcome, I like passing along knowledge when I can :-)

  9. Thank you so much for this information. Although I have a ABA therapist right now one never knows when insurance will stop helping. Your site has also provided me with much needed parent information that I can use to continue the therapy and to realize that my ABA might need a bit of help (share your website with her)to get on track. She just finished school less than a year ago.

    1. You are very welcome, all therapists (and BCBAs) need to continually seek out continuing education so that the ABA programs we design and create stay fresh and current. Thats true no matter how long we have been in the field.
      I'm glad the info was helpful for you :-)

  10. This is an impressive list of resources. Thanks for your generous supply of ideas and tools.

  11. A big thanks from France! I wait for your articles every week and your blog is my favourite source of informations!
    I'm interested by many of your " FREE ABA Resources" but some of them are unavailable :(. I hope you find some time one of these days to upload new links for us ;).
    Thank you for your contribution to promote ABA!!! :D

    1. Hi Stephanie! :-)

      Thanks so much for telling me there are some dead links :-( One of these days when I get 5 minutes :-), I will go through and update this listing.

      Au Revoir!

  12. Thank you so much for your resources, a life saver, they're extremely important, helpful and informative. Different teaching strategies, how to reinforce good behavior. Awesome ��

  13. Great Blog! I can tell that you are truly passionate about ABA!!! :)

    1. Thank you! Welcome to the blog, make yourself comfortable :-)

  14. Great resources. The best I've found so far. Thank you!

  15. Hi Ms. Tameika,

    Great Job on your blog...Im a MFT-Intern currently working with a vast population of adhd and autistic clients. Im interested in moving toward becoming either an ABA or BCaBA but im confused on which is the best path for me to take. Any suggestions that could help me out?

    1. Thank you, I'm glad you enjoy the blog!

      I have some posts that would be very helpful for you, about the certification process and the steps to work in this field. Here is a link to all of them:

  16. Great job.Thank you a lot.

  17. Hi my name is Chris and I stumbled across your blog in hopes to gain information on becoming a BCBA and the long term goals associated with it. I will be entering the masters cert. program Oct. 2014. Any words of advise? After 20 years will you still love the job as you do now? What will be some tough and trying times once I gain certification. I see that there are not many males in this profession and I guess I will be bringing a little diversity to the profession. Thanks for the many resources. Chris - Pensacola, FL

  18. Hi Chris,

    Thanks for checking out the blog!

    There definitely are much more females in this field, absolutely. I have had male colleagues, and often they bring some unique play/personality qualities to the job especially when working with a male client.

    I have some blog posts that address the questions you are asking, here are links:

    Good luck to you!

  19. I'm going to be starting a position in a public school system as an instructional paraprofessional at the end of the month. I'm going to be trained, but have been googling to familiarize myself with vocabulary, lingo and acronyms. Your blog has been extremely helpful to me, as others have already stated. Just your glossary alone is a wealth of information. The fact that your title is I Love ABA makes me excited to start my new position. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    1. Congrats on your new job :-)

      I'm so glad the blog has been helpful for you, thats my goal!

  20. Hi Tameika,
    It is very helpful site to me as ABA student
    Thank you for your effort

  21. Hi, Tameika,

    I found our blog prior to my starting a Masters in Behavioral Analysis. I spent much time there. I have been swamped and overwhelmed with the first semester and am struggling with the terminology. I am working on the midterm now. I am also busy being a teacher, finishing up another Masters in Special Ed, taking care of my husband, A DAV, and life. Your blog has refreshed me and I am so glad I came here, today.


  22. Hi Caren,

    Oh gosh, don't remind me of those first few semesters of grad gets better, I promise!

    So glad the blog has been helpful for you, thank you for your comment :-)


  23. Thank you for your great blog, I can't seem to open all your resources they stop at the first page stating Oops the page doesn't seem to be loading and an icon at the top of the document stating open with and some ap names. Am I missing something? Really keen to look at your task analysis information.
    Thanks again

    1. Hi there,

      I try to regularly go through all the links, so it may be a dead link I haven't fixed yet. Or, some of the newer links are in the most recent version of Microsoft Word so if you are using an older version that may also cause difficulty opening files.


  24. This is awesome!!! Do you have a direct email address?


    1. Thank you!
      Yes I do, it's:

  25. As a fellow BCBA, I am thrilled to have found your site - this is fantastic! You have collected SO much and brought it all together...I keep opening links and bookmarking and emailing them to myself so that I will have them for the future...I have been on here for almost an hour and there's still more to see. Thank you so much!

    1. Hello & Welcome!

      You are welcome, I hope the resources are helpful to you in your practice :-)

  26. Hi!
    I am entering into the final leg of my BCBA journey, your resources are great! Thanks for sharing :)


    1. Hey, you're almost at the finish line!

      Thanks for visiting, and good luck to you :-)

  27. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and resources with us. i'm a mother with a 4 year old who is on the spectrum. Because of my baby, and the love of his 1st ABA therapist, now i'm in school for Autism and ABA. I love your blog

  28. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and many times I have been searching for an ABA answer and I end of finding it on your site! Why I don't start here is beyond me...perhaps I need to set up a program for myself :) I was wondering do you have any suggestions for sites that break down how to probe or introduce each of the ABBLS goals? The link you have above seems to be password protected now and I am having trouble finding a go to resource. Thanks for any insight!!! I'll be back to visit....:)

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for checking out the blog! :-)

      I do know of a great website (no idea why the link isn't working??) that helps give ideas for how to teach various ABLLS skills, here is a link:

      Thats the only one I know of that is so in-depth.....Im sure there are others out there though, it just may take a while to find them.

  29. I just found this site tonight and read over some things. I am so glad that i have found your site. I will say i have been an ABA paraprofessional for 7 years now and have done a wonderful job. I will be on this site regularly. Also what advice would you give to ABA paraprofessionals who have worked in this particluar field for years and want to be BCBA certifed? Is there a why ABA can take the BCBA exam without taking classes? Once again it was a pure joy finding your website

    1. Thanks for checking out the blog!

      I have a post about BCBA certification:

      I also recommend regularly reviewing the BACB website and if you have any questions about the certification process ask them directly:

  30. These resources are amazing. Thank you so much for sharing these to us. You are a blessing!

  31. I have a question. I have started studying ABA. I am looking at a scenario where someone does what is expected (helping someone) but that person does not thank them. The liklihood that they will help that person again decreases, but the behavior was not an undesirable behavior. Would this still be considered punishment?

    1. Hi there,

      Anything added or removed following a behavior that decreases the future likelihood of the behavior occurring can be described as a punisher.

  32. Thanks many much for the share.
    Am a father of an autistic kid, and this is a treasure.
    the LOTS of the visual data link seems broken/expired.

  33. Hi, I need to know any good BCBA who can help me with my child . My child is high functioning but has issue in comprehension.

  34. Hi there,

    If you go to you can search the free directory and find BCBAs in your local area.

  35. HEY thank you so much, for these wonderful, fabulous resources. i will going to be a ABA therapist though i have a long experience in mainstream.but i saw a huge different so i wanted to do a extra study for myself. so thankful that you share all of these resources. god bless

  36. Thanks for checking out the blog! Good luck with your ABA career :-)
