Janine (Jenny) has been working as an ABA therapist since 2017, during her time she has gained experience with a variety of children ranging in ages from preschool to secondary school and verbal and nonverbal. She has gained experience with PECs, Early Start Denver Model, and early sound production and can carry out assessments such as the VB MAPP, Barriers to learning and functional assessments.
Jenny has a Psychology degree and a Masters degree in ABA from the University of Ulster. During her placement she volunteered at a mainstream Primary School and implemented ABA principles with a ten year old child with Autism. Her dissertation focused on increasing independent skills such as dressing, setting the table and making a snack using video modelling in the home setting.
During her internship with PTL which started in 2019 Jenny has had vast experience and exposure to toilet training, feeding programmes, behaviour support plans, a vast curriculum, token economies, differential reinforcement, PECS, communication training and play. She attends weekly supervision sessions and is always keen on upskilling and learning more in the field. Her special interests are PECS, NET, social skills, assessment and verbal behaviour/social communication.
Jenny is currently working towards her BCBA credential and is receiving 1500 independent supervised hours under Pathway To Learning to become a certified Behaviour Analyst. She is focused on working with individuals both verbal and nonverbal with a range of behaviours and likes to devote her time researching different areas within the field. She is devoted to her clients and often goes beyond her role as a Lead therapist/PTL associate and dedicates so much of her time to researching, report writing and becoming a proficient and diligent Behaviour Analyst.
