Being a BCBA within a School System with Natalie Todd

Being a BCBA within a School System with Natalie Todd


Natalie Todd is a Board-certified behavior analyst (BCBA) and school-based behavioral consultant for our school districts.  Natalie is one of our incredible team members who works with  Extraordinary Pediatrics PC, which is part of St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children.

Natalie was featured recently in “How to ABA Podcast,” which focuses on practical advice for Applied Behavioral Analysis professionals.

Being a BCBA within a school system can be challenging, especially if you’re the only resource. Natalie talks about the importance of scheduling and how things can get thrown off. Training other staff on intervention strategies can help you work through unexpected issues, so they only take up part of your day. Collaboration is a big part of Natalie’s day-to-day and coming up with treatment plans for students is always a team-based approach.
