Instructor: Carlos Zuluaga
M.S., BCBA, Lead Co-instructor
As a member of our team, Carlos Zuluaga is very excited to help disseminate behavior analysis around the world. He is proud to be part of a profession that is dedicated to understanding behavior and improving people's lives. Carlos has been a co-instructor for our Applied Behavior Analysis professional development program since 2010. He loves teaching our online courses because it allows him to share his passion for behavior analysis with both students and colleagues.
Before joining ABA Technologies, Inc., Carlos was a lead therapist at QuestKids, an early intervention agency, for seven years. During this time, he learned to conduct a number of skill assessments such as the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB- MAPP), develop verbal behavior programs, teach a variety of skills to children with developmental disabilities, train caregivers and provide supervision.
Carlos is currently working on a conceptual paper on the different effects of consequences on both behavior and antecedents and is developing an Excel version of the Standard Celeration Chart. Additionally, Carlos helped translate sections of the VB-MAPP into Spanish and has developed Spanish presentations on verbal behavior. Carlos has been a board-certified behavior analyst (BCBA) since 2007 and received his master's in applied behavior analysis from Florida Institute of Technology in 2006.
Carlos' master's thesis, an evaluation of the high-probability instruction sequence with and without programmed reinforcement for compliance with high-probability instructions, was published in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis in 2008.
