Roxana I Nedelcu

I am a licensed behavior analyst working with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) ages 2-14. I have 19 years of experience in working directly with children teaching crucial communication, play, and self-help skills as well as working with parents and teachers.

My Approach

My approach is rooted in the principles and procedures of applied behavior analysis (ABA). In working with children I combine structured, therapist-led strategies with less structured, natural flow, child-led  strategies. I deliver these strategies with compassion, flexibility, and wonder, to teach communication, social, and self-help skills. I have 14 years of experience coaching parents, teachers, and therapists working with children. In my coaching I use behavior skills training (BST) and relationship building to help parents and teachers become effective and responsive interaction partners for their children. I provide supervision for registered behavior technicians and BCBA candidates who are interested in becoming successful behavior analysts.

My Background

I have a Ph.D in Psychology with an emphasis in Behavior Analysis. I am a licensed behavior analyst and a board certified behavior analyst. I specialize in improving communication, play, and social skills using a verbal behavior approach together with pivotal response training, shaping, and prompting. I also have 14 years of experience working with parents and teachers,  conducting supervision, and parent coaching programs. In spite of having worked with  children  and their loved ones for many years, I continue to feel amazed by each child's candor, humor, and their unique constellation of strengths and weaknesses. I also continue to be amazed by the strength of each family I've worked with and their willingness to do the hard work required to expand their children's experiences and skills.
