I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) working with children with autism for about 16 years. I have two Masters qualifications, MSc of Psychotherapy and Psychosocial Interventions (Iasi, Romania) and MSc in Public Health, Health Services Innovations (Maastricht, The Netherlands).
As a behaviour analyst I have got experience in teaching SEN teachers, tutors and families how to implement ABA methods in working with children with autism and problem behaviours. I am able to speak English, Russian and Romanian. I have also worked in a new ABA school in UK and involved in designing school curricula for children, designing behavioural plans, training and supervising tutors.
I have also participated as a lecturer at international conferences where I have presented results of my experimental studies: Using video modelling in toilet training of a child with autism and Effects of functional communication training plus extinction on child’s aggression.
