After five years as an English teacher in Asia, and seven years as a high school special education teacher in Chicago, Rachel began studying Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) in 2012. She became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) in 2014 and has worked extensively in both home and school settings since that time. She specializes in early intervention through the use of Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT), a naturalistic, child-initiated, and research-based intervention that targets pivotal areas of a child's development and emphasizes parent training. Rachel also has an undergraduate degree in psychology and a graduate degree in education, both from the California State University at Long Beach.
