Hi, my name is Malisa Ojeda, I have received my graduate degree from Kaplan Universty in Psychology with an emphasis in ABA. Currently, I am working in the field of ABA with clients of behavioral and mental health disorders. I have over eight years of experience.
There is everything and everyone to enjoy about this field. Families and clients are amazing. It is truly beautiful to see the growth of each client through the application of principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors, A.K.A.; ABA
Advice for Parents
Create structure and predictability for your child, this will help your child know what to expect and what is expected of them. Visual schedules are a great tool to create this. Children with ADHD are more likely to succeed in completing tasks when they can visually see what tasks will occur and what is expected each time. Creating predictable patterns and predictable places help when creating schedules.
Stay Positive! Parents set the stage for their child’s emotional and physical health. Keep a positive attitude. Remember that your child’s behavior is related to a disorder and not acting out. So keep calm and focused, set the example.
