Instructor: Matthew Osborne
Matthew R. Osborne received a Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis from Florida Institute of Technology in 2007 and became a BCBA later that year. In 2000, he was introduced to behavior analysis as an undergrad while simultaneously working as a direct support professional in an in-patient mental health hospital and as a behavior therapist in a school for adolescents diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Matthew has experience supervising and providing behavioral services to children and adults diagnosed with autism, intellectual disability or brain injury within residential, school, community and in-patient hospital settings. He actively seeks opportunities to communicate the effectiveness of ABA to parents, new client populations and local businesses and organizations. Matthew is a tech geek and is energized by finding hacks to improve both staff performance and client outcomes. Currently, he is developing strategies to improve both communication and collaboration across multidisciplinary treatment teams. Additionally, he enjoys developing practical and effective interventions for adults who exhibit high intensity/low frequency problem behavior in in-patient and community-based settings. Matthew is excited to be a part of Florida Tech's highly qualified team of co-instructors and to share his experiences as a professional behavior analyst with future behavior analysts.
