Course Descriptions

In our ongoing effort to disseminate safe, dignified, and effective assessment and treatment processes, FTF Behavioral Consulting is pleased to offer new training opportunities for busy professionals.

Classes size will be held to a maximum of 10 students to keep the learning experience intimate. Our courses are more than just a didactic experience—we help you address one of your challenging cases. For example, by the end of the PFA/SBT course, participating professionals will have had the opportunity to plan and conduct the PFA process, develop a personalized SBT plan for their client, begin implementing the plan, and receive feedback and problem solving assistance as the plan is implemented.

All courses will be taught by licensed, doctoral-level board certified behavior analysts (BCBA-Ds). FTF trainers and consultants are experienced practitioners and researchers. Each has directly facilitated meaningful outcomes for children and young adults using PFA-based treatments and are actively contributing to the peer-reviewed literature on which all FTF training and consulting is based.

Class Structure: 

Courses will consist of:

  • Interactive lecture
  • Clinical case review for 1 child/client per participating professional
  • Private discussion board where participants will support one another with instructor guidance

Students will also have the opportunity to purchase one-on-one consults with their instructors post-class at a reduced rate.

Participants:

Our courses are designed for Board Certified Behavior Analysts, students of behavior analysis, Special Educators, Speech and Language Pathologists, and Psychologists. In general, there are no prerequisites for the courses, however some are designed for students who are more intimate with the process and some for first-time students. See the courses below for these designations. We encourage students to self-select their placement, but if you have any questions on which course is most appropriate for you please e-mail Dr. Anthony Cammilleri (acammilleri@ftfbc.com).

Continuing Education Credits:

The opportunity to earn CEUs is available for all courses. The amount and type will depend on the course.

Partial Scholarships:

Because our mission is about dissemination, a limited number of partial scholarships are available per course, up to 25% off the full course price. Note that full scholarships are not available at this time. If you receive a scholarship it will be in the form of 10-25% off the full price of the course.  If you would like to apply for a partial scholarship, please fill out the form here.
