Abby Greif earned both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Florida Institute of Technology. She graduated with a B.A. in Psychology in 2012, received her Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis in December 2014 and became a BCBA a few months later. Abby's primary experience is in early intervention, working with individuals diagnosed with autism and other related developmental disabilities in center-based, in-home and in school settings.
Throughout her time as a student, Abby worked as a therapist and team lead for several years at the Scott Center for Autism Treatment, where she gained experience in conducting functional assessments as well as the VB-MAPP and ABLLS-R, implementing behavior plans, participating in research, and training new staff, parents, and teachers. She also was involved in many programs at the Scott Center, including pediatric feeding, intensive toilet training, severe behavior, social skills and parent training. In addition to providing direct one-on-one services, she was a member of the curriculum committee, on which she assisted in writing and developing a variety of programs for children with autism.
Abby has been actively involved in research, primarily in the areas of skill acquisition, problem behavior and pediatric feeding disorders. She has been published as an author in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and has presented at multiple conferences. Recently, she decided to pursue her passion of behavior analysis in the field of education and teaching. Abby is currently a curriculum development specialist at ABA Technologies, implementing instructional design techniques and organizational behavior management principles to further enhance the effectiveness of online education.
