 BCBA/BCaBA Test Prep



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


December 2019


I can help you pass the BCBA exam.


The behavioral definition of 'anxiety' includes working very hard for something but not getting the expected reinforcer often without exactly knowing why or what happened. Instead of going back to the same thing; the same group think; the same stress, do something different.


I offer 1:1, individualized and differentiated tutoring. I get to know you and we will figure out what's going on together. I schedule 7 days a week, I am affordable, and I work - directly - with you in weekly sessions. I am also open to scheduling differently and interested in your circumstances. Talk to me


I have my own original mock exam process and offer you my original learning resources/materials based on what you need across our sessions. I work with English as a second language, International students and those who have - or should have - test modifications. For international students, I will consider exchange rates when calculating  my fee.

While I've only used my mock exam during sessions with my online students thus far, I have been actively working on the model and will be making products available online and for use by my students very soon. And my students will typically have initial access to my products as assignments/activities across session activities along with a reduced cost for additional products developed.


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


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!

My block rate of $60 is for each live online 1:1 session per week which includes everything identified above. Sessions typically go for 75 - 90  minutes. For  two sessions per week, I reduce the cost of individual sessions by $10 for a total of $100 per week. 

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

For folks who schedule multiple sessions ahead - which is always a good idea but not required - I will reduce my block rate by 5% to $57 following our third consecutive session when more have been scheduled.

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 BCaBAs and BCBAs both online and in person. Experience does matter....

My students are typically very pleased with the test prep services I offer. In fact, some of my students choose to continue working with me after they've passed the exam as part of the direct or indirect remote clinical services I offer often as a mentor (see below for more information).


Hi Dr. Lou, 


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

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!
