LACOE is an excellent organization to provide psychological services to students who are at tier 3.
Pros: ability to apply applied behavioral analytic skills in the classroom.
Cons: coordinating the delivery of services can be challenging.
I currently work full time with severely disabled children K-14, helping staff to provide instructional and behavioral services, including psycho-educational evaluations. I work closely with nine teachers and their para-educators across nine classrooms. I work with a wonderful team of administrators and teaching staff. The hardest part of the job is related to stable staffing patterns. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping children achieve significantly important behaviors and academic growth.
There have been opportunities to train staff over the years, and I have enjoyed this type of activity. I have no plans to change my position at LACOE. At this juncture in my career, I am looking forward to teaching, particularly and exclusively in the field of ABA. I received my certificate in ABA from National University and have recently become a BCBA. With the information fresh at hand, I want to pass it on. The university setting would be the perfect place to do that.
