BCBA/BCaBA/RBT Test Prep; RBT Competencies

Remote BCBA/BCaBA/RBT Supervsion

Remote and In-Person Clinical Behavioral Services and Support with a Focus on Higher intensity and More Persistent Behavioral Need to include Feeding

 

I am a BCBA - D with 45 years of clinical experience almost all community and home-based. I have 10 years in academia to include curriculum development. I've been a Clinical Director and Senior Behavior Analyst. I've offered BCBA/BCaBA test prep and field supervision in person and remote for many years. 

Consider the difference working with an experienced PhD BCBA - D level clinician and teacher.

I offer 1:1 individualized test prep tutoring with an emphasis on those who need to retake the exam. I also work with first time test takers, international students, English as a second language and those who have - or should have had - test modifications. I understand the stress and frustration and will help you address and work through it. For international students, I always consider time zones and exchange rates. Small study groups are welcome. 

I also offer individual BCBA/BCaBA course mentoring for those wanting more support than is available in your current online grad program. 

                                                                                 

                                                                                  Experience Matters!

=====================

 

I bring added capacity and offer clinical support to BCBAs and families/caregivers addressing higher intensity, persistent and often harder to reach behavior need to include individuals with more at risk physical behaviors and SIB; significant feeding issues; sleep disruption and delayed toileting/self care.

I also have extensive experience and am available to provide direct in-person support in school settings to include public, tribal and private schools.

 

I am affordable and always try to respond back within 48 hours - if not sooner.  

I can help...

==============================

BCBA; BCaBA; RBT Test Prep

If you've struggled with the BCBA exam, do things differently. Stop going back to the same sites. I offer individualized 1:1 BCBA test prep tutoring to help figure out what has interfered with your success on this exam.

I provide resources to include my own 14+ part unique instructional mini mock system. Stop 'following the task list' and prioritizing flash cards. The BCBA exam does not 'follow the task list' and is not a vocabulary test. We'll practice thinking like a Behavior Analyst! We will work on content as well as specific strategies to help take the test which is challenging for the range of content it covers in addition to the way it is written - which can be very confusing.

My individualized Test Prep tutoring starts at a - very competitive - $60 flat rate per session. Our initial conversation is typically without charge. After this first contact, I will invoice following each session and am always open to discussing individual circumstances. I typically ask students to schedule at least 4- 6 weeks out unless you have specific needs or timelines you'd like to discuss further.  

This $60 per session flat rate includes my full test prep services with 75 - 90 minute of 1:1 online contact session, learning resources/PPTs and my 14+ part unique instructional mini mock system. To those wanting to schedule more than once per week, I offer a reduction of 5% for any week with 2 sessions. As part of my test prep services, I am also accessible by email between sessions.  

I get to know you and we will figure out together what has interfered in your success. I schedule 7 days a week and am always affordable. And since I invoice session to session, you will never be 'trapped' into a prepaid number of contacts or hours. Break the pattern. My first conversation is typically without charge or obligation. There's no reason not to talk....

See this website for more information on other services I provide to include RBT test prep; BCBA/BCaBA Supervision; and remote Direct and Indirect Clinical Behavior Services.

I have long specialized in providing services for and supporting children and adults with more persistent, higher intensity behavioral need to include feeding, delayed toileting and sleep disruption with support for families/caregivers. I have supported BCBAs, agencies, schools, families, and clinical mental health professionals.

 

Let's talk....

I cleared the exam 🙈

I’ve been trying to write a mail to you for the longest time. But no words seemed enough. I wanted to thank you, for being such a huge part of me getting my license. I question everything. I think functionally. I think beyond just traditions functions. I THINK! and don’t blindly follow. And your sessions gave me that! I believe nothing can beat an education which facilitates one to think. 🥹 You’re a gem!

 

Thank you for being such a patient and understanding mentor.

Thank you for your patience with me. I have heard and read many terms, but may not be able to define them. I appreciate how kind you are and the time that you spend with explaining a concept. Thank you for explaining concepts. You do a great job!

Dr. Lou changed my approach to test taking. I began looking at the questions more carefully and rereading when needed. Dr. Lou helps me break down concepts that I don't understand into strategies that will stick with me. Dr. Lou is very knowledgeable and learning from him made a huge difference in my studying.

I greatly appreciated our study sessions. I took the exam and passed! The information, guidance, and questions you helped me to work through helped me with my fluency and confidence going into the exam, especially when I was not feeling too good about being laid off and dealing with family responsibilities. Our sessions helped me to stay focused on my goals and to identify what I did know and what I needed to study going into the exam. I had flagged 6 questions and went back through them. I didn't change my answers, which took every bone in my body not to do, but I could hear your voice in my head telling me not to do it! I went in feeling prepared and confident. Your advisement on reading the supervision and ethics docs on the BACB website and being familiar with the content was also very helpful.

Thank you so much for all the knowledge you have given me over the course of our tutoring sessions and for helping me become prepared for making it through the RBT examination. I am pleased to inform you I passed the exam!!  

Even more thanks for helping me grow the self-confidence I needed upon entering the world of ABA. As I was taking the examination, I heard your voice in the back of my head telling me not to doubt myself-and that I knew the answer!

 

Thank you for going the extra mile to send me resources that assisted me in my studies, such as the DTT pp, stimulus preference assessment h/o, and examination practice questions.

As a young adult, I  sincerely feel we all need a mentor like you in our lives who is willing to share their skills, knowledge, and expertise. You are a great role model, and inspire young people like myself to pursue their career goals.

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!

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.

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.  You will never be 'trapped' into a prepaid number of contacts or hours when working with me

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
