ABA Student Receives 2019 BCOTB Fellowship

Theresa Barhold received the 2019 BCOTB fellowship which has been established for 2nd year master's students in the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program at the University of South Florida. The fellowship, offered through BCOTB in Tampa, provides a two-semester stipend for a student who is able to work 20 hours per week at BCOTB as their practicum placement, and then willing to work at BCOTB after graduating from USF. Theresa's research is focused on a behavioral strategy known as chaining that is used to teach children with autism complex behaviors by breaking them down into smaller sequential steps.
