1. ABA, SLP, AS, CI... oh, my! What does it all mean?
Like many other professions, educators over the years created their own lingo. After spending 4 + years around this language, it's almost second nature to me, as I am sure it is to some of you. If at any time, though, something in a post is vague, confusing, or just too many letters to decipher, feel free to consult this page or contact me! I will try to use a clear, concise language but mistakes are inevitable. The following alphabetical list will grow as content is added:

ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis)
ADHD/ADD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/Attention Deficit Disorder)
AS (Autistic Support or Autism Spectrum)
BCaBA (Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst)
BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst)
CI (Cognitive Impairment)
DTI (Discrete Trial Instruction, see also DTT)
DTT (Discrete Trial Teaching, see also DTI)
PDD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified)
SLP (Speech-Language Pathologist)

2. Are you a BCaBA or BCBA?
No, but as of Fall 2013 I will be enrolled in an accredited Master's program in ABA. I plan to sit for my BCBA exam in 2015. I did complete a BCaBA program at the undergraduate level but fell so in love with the science that I chose to continue learning of it. The ideas expressed here are strictly my opinion and should not be substituted for any form of medical or professional consultation.

3. Where can I follow you?
Here, of course (using Blogger or e-mail)!
