I PASSED, thank you so much for all of your help along the way! I was picturing you telling me to slow down and to read every question.

I did it!  I passed the beast! I couldn't have done it without you! I'm just so unbelievably relieved!!!

Hi Dr. Lou!

I wanted to let you know I passed the BCBA exam and I couldn’t thank you enough!!! I guess three times really is the charm for me!  You are such an amazing teacher and behavior analyst.  Thank you for sharing your incredible knowledge and time with me.  You have a wonderful way of breaking down some difficult concepts and applying them to the perfect examples.  I know you not only  helped better prepare me for the exam, but also as a BCBA.  I hope to pass on the kindness and patience with clients and coworkers that you shared with me.  


Thank you again!

I can help you pass the BCBA exam whether it is your first time taking or, especially, if you have tripped over this thing one, twice - or more. It's not you..... 

Stop rote memorization. Stop rereading Cooper. Stop 'following the Task list' and learn more how to use and connect the Task List. I focus on building your capacity as a Behavior Analyst while prioritizing success on the BCBA exam. Rather than the often disconnected compartmentalized presentation provided by others, I work with my students to put it all together. And I am always consistent with 'WWCS' ... 'What Would Cooper Say.'

My BCBA Test Prep sessions are 1:1 and usually weekly (more by request) with a bit of initial 'assessment' to help me identify about where each new student is and how to best prioritize services. I differentiate for each student.

That I bring 40+ years of clinical, teaching and higher education experience helps me to more effectively consider how to best support each student.

Experience matters.....

There are very few 'definition' questions on the exam but lots of vignettes and scenarios which can sometimes be challenging to work though. We will focus on test taking and dealing with the sometimes difficult wording and language of the exam questions. In addition to my use of my mock exam as part of online sessions, I offer a uniquely instructional  series of BCBA 'mini-mock exams.' 

I work with international students, English as a second language and those who've had - or should have had - test modifications in place. I also consider exchange rates for international students.

Individual sessions start at a $50 block rate. This includes all identified: weekly 1:1 sessions, my own PPTS and other individualized learning resources; my unique online instructional mock exam system and series of 'mini mocks and being accessible to you by email between sessions.

Since my first conversation is no charge or obligation, there's no reason not to talk more and get information. I am also open to individual circumstances.

Contact me through this website. And please be sure to leave me your email/contact information. Join my website to stay up to date. I look forward to hearing from you....


Dr. Sandler was instrumental in preparing me to be a BCBA, not just pass the test (although he did that too:). His methods and strategies were effective in neutralizing aversive stimuli I had associated with the test. He helped interrupt the cycle of failure and rebuild my foundation for success step by step.

 I get to know you and we will figure out together what has interfered in your success. I schedule 7 days a week, I am always affordable. I am also open to scheduling differently and interested in your circumstances. Talk to me


Break the pattern. My first conversation is always without charge or obligation. There's no reason not to talk....


I do not ask for upfront charges but schedule and charge session to session. We can schedule a few sessions or ongoing with my invoice typically sent following each session unless previous arrangements have been made. You will never be 'trapped' into a prepaid number of contacts or hours when working with me


 Experience matters. I have 40+ years as a clinician providing behavioral and related services across the autism spectrum as well as a wide range of individual need and diversity. I've been college faculty and an agency-based clinical director. I have designed and implemented a range of training curriculum and have supervised BCBAs, BCaBAs and RBTs both online and in person.


I passed the exam!! Thank you so much for all of your help and motivating words!!

Thank you Dr Sandler for helping me!! I could not have passed this without you!!!

I passed my BCBA exam in May 2019 on my 4th attempt. The tutoring I receive from Dr. Lou was extremely beneficial.  During the session Dr Lou and I engaged verbal dialogue which is essential to fully understand the concepts. Dr. Lou  gave me useful strategies to “break apart” the questions by recognizing those “key word”  and application of the terms to the questions that were asked. The materials he provided were user friendly; he also would further assist me with other study material I was using if I encountered concepts or questions I did not understand. Thank you Dr Lou.

Dr Lou...your content knowledge is off the charts.  You are so good at explaining difficult concepts and providing excellent examples. Also, I like the PP's and articles that you have given me.  Extremely helpful especially the experimental design area (great tools to refer back to and study) You also have a very kind and patient side that makes people feel comfortable, even when you have to deliver constructive feedback

 I also offer small group Test Prep services. Please see my BCBA Test Prep page for more information and fees.

I want to work with you. Whether you are taking the BCBA or BCaBA exam for the first time or - especially - if you've been working hard to pass the exam and are still not sure why you've tripped over it once, twice...more...I want to work with you. I can help you pass the BCBA exam. And I am open to discussion with regards to individual circumstances and need.


After just a few sessions, I am already looking at the questions differently and have better success with answering the questions correctly. Thank you!!

Please also be sure to check out my Instragram account since I post information and randomized mock exam questions (bridging_behavior)....and, occasionally, some nice pictures! Also be sure to check out the Blog and Resource pages in this website for a lot more information. And if you subscribe to my website, you won't miss a thing....

Since my first conversation via video or phone is without any charge or obligation, there's no reason not to talk. Don't wait until weeks before you are scheduled to sit for your BCBA exam. Start preparing now.


See my BCBA Test Prep and Services pages for LOTS more information



I just wanted you to know that I passed this past May! I am so happy! I appreciate the talks we did have and the help you gave me! I have been going through a lot the last 6 months and this could not have come at a better time! I will look for you at any events I attend if the future and I hope I can meet you someday!
