Instructor: Bob Ryan
Robert Ryan was graduated with a Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis from Florida Tech in 2007 and became a BCBA in 2008. He has experience in verbal behavior, functional assessment and analysis, behavior support plans, discrete trail training, natural environment teaching, precision teaching, direct instruction and assessment of basic language and learning skills, but considers verbal behavior his specialty and the area he is most interested in. Robert has held various positions as a behavior analyst, including district behavior analyst for the Osceola County Public Schools, where he developed programs and training for school and district-level staff and administered district cases for the implementation of programs and student placement changes. He has also been the CEO and president of Behavior & Communication Therapy, Inc., a behavior analysis company consulting with individual families and institutions, specializing in individual student and employee goals and providing training, management and organization for those who are working with individuals with autism and other developmental disorders. Robert has always thought that ABA is a critical component of teaching; it defines, describes and prescribes what good teaching is.
