Instructor: Andrew Houvouras
Andrew Houvouras says, "The world is better because of applied behavior analysis. The world needs applied behavior analysis." Certified as a behavior analyst since 1998, Andrew graduated with an M.A. in Psychology from Marshall University. A BCBA for Brevard County public schools since 2001, Andrew specializes in the assessment and treatment of severe challenging behavior, serves as an expert witness for county due process cases and handles high-acuity cases within the school system. A regular presenter at local, state and international conferences, an author of CE presentations and a published author, Andrew enjoys public speaking and spending time with his family swimming, surfing, stand-up paddle-boarding and coaching and playing sports. His interests are all aspects of ABA, including behavioral medicine, the application of ABA to individuals with autism spectrum disorders and the dissemination of ABA. He looks forward to every class he teaches and feels fortunate to be part of the program. "I hope students understand learning is lifelong and remember what B.F. Skinner said, 'Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.'"
