Hi, I’m Amelia
I empower families struggling with problem behaviour
so they can understand the WHY
and get through the day with clarity and confidence,
feeling proud, positive and connected with their kids.
What is your biggest parenting challenge?
I share Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)
because it has transformed me,
helped me overcome life-long barriers
guided me as I teach my children
and allowed me to make a powerful difference
in the lives of others.

If you see yourself snapping at your loved ones,
doubting your abilities as a parent, dreading the same inevitable arguments and escalations each day,
and wondering how you are ever going to get through this jungle, you will need a clear map to find your way out.
Every family is different,

What’s a behaviour analyst, and what do they do?
Behavior Analysis is the scientific study of principles of learning and behavior.
Practitioners of behavior analysis can
- provide behavioral assessments
- analyze data
- write and revise behavior-analytic treatment plans
- train others to implement components of treatment plans
- oversee the implementation of treatment plans
Behavior analysts can help skill deficits (e.g., communication, adaptive behavior), and problem behavior (e.g., aggression, self-injurious behavior), among others.
The Behavior Analyst Certification Board provides more information about certification, responsibilities and ethics.
