Mandana Roushanmeidan

I have been a behavioral therapist for more than 5 years. I started my training as an undergraduate in nursing. After working several years as a nurse, I became fascinated with human behavior and relationship. I decided to study human behavior and obtained a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology from Northern Arizona University as well as an Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) certificate from George Mason University.
Over the past few years I have gained extensive experience working and treating many patients, as young as 18 months up to 65 years of age, with behavioral and psychological challenges.
My passion lies in early-intervention, academic readiness skill building and adolescent social skills acquisition. I have worked with and remain interested in working with students of varying ethnicities and cultures.
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the use of certain techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior. As a behavior analyst, I observe and collect information on the target behaviors. This includes information provided by the parents as well as what I observe during the sessions. Once enough information is collected, a thorough review is conducted in order to identify the triggers of behavior. I then develop prevalence strategies and determine the appropriate treatment option so as to decrease the incidence of target behaviors.
