Changes Coming

I want to add ABA school/program, Exam Prep Reviews, and book list to the website. I have been wanting to do this for awhile but someone got lazy AND busy… anyway, I want Simple ABA to be another platform for questions and resources on ABA and BACB  exam (also other things too). My FB group shall remain as a fine, fine resource/forum for ABA.

Let’s do this!

May the desired consequence be with you!

BCBA Study Tips LXVII

Petra Serafini of New York

“I purchased the BDS modules as my attempt to start studying. I worked on them for about 2-3 hours on week nights and maybe about 4-5 hours on the weekends. In addition to that I also read some of the Cooper chapters, especially one’s I did poorly on in BDS pre tests. About a week before the test I went through SAFMEDS and also went back through the modules and reviewed any that took 4 or more tries to reach the criterion. But most of all, I am just thankful for FIT, I honestly don’t think I would have been able to do it without having that as my foundation!”

“My future plans? Well about a month ago I accepted a position at a hospital as the first ABA person (they were willing to hire me before receiving my certification). I am currently working on revamping their programs on the units (especially with the little ones) to make them run more smoothly. I started doing basis ABA training for staff and just being present to provide behavioral supports. The hospital uses a lot of restraints and seclusions for behavior management and I am int he process of changing that!

Awhile back, I lost a bet to Lindsey Sneed, aka the BCBA mom. So I paid my bet and here is the link!

P.S. some of the links are broken (I am working on it) but you can easily find them under the categories and tags. Let me know, ya?

Keep Me Posting

Congratulations to the newly minted BCBAs!

I have yet to start posting the tips from the May crop and the August results are in?!

I will keep them coming… please let me know how I can help and keep me accountable… and keep me posted with your progress, ya?

Also, I will be adding posts such as “best school” and “best preps” as these questions are being asked frequently in the group… so I decided it is time to redirect the discussions to the blog instead.

May the desired consequence be with you!

Podcast! (Or Something Like That)

Well remember I said I was working on something? It was some interviews that I did with a few very talented and friendly BCBAs and I had put the interviews into an mp3… still trying to figure out how to make it legit as podcast… Anyone with some skills please contact me, I really, really can use some help to get this out to more people.

Here’s the link: http://bcbainterview.blogspot.com/

Thank you so much… again! And wow… lots of things happened since post no.1! Or even between post no. 49 and no. 50! TWO flat tires One night! (therefore, no Weird Wednesday this week!)

I sure am glad that I made it home. I thank my friend, Richard for helping me out BIG TIME! And man, I need to be a better friend to… (maybe we should de-mentalize friendship, ya?)

I will continue to provide my take on ABA/BCBA/Star Wars and other silly stuff… and hunt for nice folks to share their study tips! For those who are sitting in the September exam! Keep up with your (White) book hitting behavior! Work that EO (and AO).

The End is Near!

The tunnel that is. Dark, it is, very indeed. And you are almost there. Crush it! Push through! I am here for you!

Thank you for hanging around for 50 posts!
