If online instructors are needed to include those able to more quickly start teaching coursework in behavior analysis, education and/or special education...I am available and can start immediately whether with one, or multiple courses, which are in progress, brand new and/or waiting to be started. Longer term would be great but is not required.

SPECIAL RATE CHANGES
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.....
My BCBA Test Prep sessions are 1:1 and typically weekly (twice per week 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 and teaching experience helps me to more effectively consider how to best support each student. Experience does matter.....
Rather than rote memorization and definitions, I focus on better understanding behavior analysis while building capacity as a Behavior Analyst. Rather than the often compartmentalized and disconnected presentation provided by others, I work with my students to put it all back together.
A reality is there are very few 'definition' questions on the exam but lots of vignettes and scenarios. We will also spend time practicing test taking and figuring out how to deal with the sometimes difficult wording and language of the exam questions using my own, original, mock exam process.
In addition to my mock exam as part of online sessions, I am creating 'mini-mocks' which I am now making available to my students as part of our contacts, for now, at the same block rate per session. I plan to start selling them as products soon
I work with international students, English as a second language and those who've had - or should have had - test modifications in place
Individual sessions start at a $50 block rate per for all of the above and will reduce to $45 per session. Further reductions are offered for twice per week sessions. Since my first conversation is still at 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....
For parents/caregivers who've suddenly found themselves and their child without any - or bare minimal - services, I want to help and want to talk with you. I will provide remote services, which I've been doing for years now on top of 40+ years of home/community based clinical and services, that you will be able to afford. NO child or family should suddenly find themselves without services while also stuck in their home all or most of the day.
Since my first conversation is always without any charge or obligation, there is no reason not to talk. I look forward to contact
I can also work with agencies to help transition staff to use effective strategies for autism services since it will, by necessity, have to actively include parents/caregivers. I have a model which I an share.
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 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 (now reduced to $50 per session) 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
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!!
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!
Online BCBA supervision
The experience and training of the BCBA Supervisor matters. I have 40 years of clinical experience and have worked across a wide range of communities, individual diversity and need. In addition to community, school and home-based clinical services, I also have just about 10 years as higher education faculty with experience in curriculum and program development.
See my BCBA Supervision page for more information and fees.
