Requirements

Talia Rossi

Applied Behavior Analysis Psychology BA ‘20, Applied Behavior Analysis MA ‘22
Special Education Teacher, Central Mass Collaborative

Assumption helped me become a professional in the field by having high, yet attainable expectations.

Assumption also has provided me with my current job as a teacher pursuing my BCBA credential. I was able to intern at CMC in my final semester in undergrad and was able to transition right into a career that would also provide a discount on my graduate tuition.
Julia Mazzola

Psychology 2020
Psychology with a Minor in Applied Behavior Analysis; Level 2 Teacher at The New England Center for Children

After working with Assumption’s Psychology faculty, I felt prepared entering my chosen career path.

In both my Psychology major and Applied Behavior Analysis minor, Assumption’s professors have set me up for success by allowing me to develop meaningful relationships, enhancing not only my undergraduate studies, but also my advanced educational and occupational pursuits.
Amanda Maynard

Applied Behavior Analysis 2019
Special Education Teacher and BCBA (supervisor), Worcester Public Schools

The class sizes are small, and the professors are accessible and kind.

Assumption’s ABA program provided opportunities for learning and assessment of student knowledge, practicum experience, and covered the perfect amount of content taught seamlessly, which was hugely influential in my achievement of passing the board exam through the BACB.
Kate Diaz

Applied Behavior Analysis 2019
Behavioral Clinician, Horace Mann Educational Associates (HMEA)

The Applied Behavior Analysis program challenged and supported me in becoming a behavioral clinician

Each one of my instructors brought their own experience into the classroom which has been useful in my current position. I assist in creating Positive Behavioral Support plans that focus on adults increasing their independence and accomplishing their goals.
Joshua Jenness, BCBA, LABA

Applied Behavior Analysis 2018
Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Shapiro Educational & Behavioral Consultants

The most rewarding aspect of my job is applying what I’ve learned on a day-to-day basis.

There’s a saying, ‘If you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism.’ Every client is different. Every day brings a unique challenge. I like that I can create new programs for specific individuals to help them move forward in their lives.
