Rachel Torrance is a BCBA and the Assistant Regional Vice President at Cultivate Behavioral Health and Education. She’s also the co-owner of a company called Supervision Academy, a remote supervision training agency. ABA was a huge component of her special education studies and gained a lot of hands-on experience through teaching in the classroom. She eventually left the classroom to become a consultant and a BCBA.
If you’re a new BCBA, Rachel recommends that you always ask questions and be open to learning. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is important to being successful in the field and helps you avoid burnout. She also has some great suggestions for how the field can improve going forward, especially within the realm of positive reinforcement and a richer assessment process.
We collaborated with Rachel and her business partner, Rose, to create the ABA forum last year in March. It was a great success, and we are so excited to do it again this year! We’ll be hosting the 2022 ABA forum on February 8, 9, and 10. This year, we have six phenomenal speakers lined up. It’s free to attend, with an extra fee if you would like to receive CE credit.
