Michelle O’Connor

My name is Michele O’Connor. I hold a Masters of Education in Counseling, M.Ed., Board Certified Behavior Analyst certification, BCBA, Licensed Behavior Specialist, LBS-PA, and Nationally Certified Counselor, NCC credentials. I completed by master’s work at The Pennsylvania State University and I completed by ABA certification coursework at Florida Institute of Technology.

I have been in the field of ABA since 2006. In addition to teaching at Capella University as an ABA instructor and working as a subject matter expert for 5th edition curriculum development revisions, I provide training, supervision and behavior plan reviews for individuals and ABA agencies to their Analyst’s and RBT’s. I also provide direct face-to-face as well as remote BCBA services overseeing and delivering ABA programming. I work with kiddos just being identified with a diagnosis as early as 18 months up until 21 years of age to provide behavioral analytic support as well as more skill-based and functional communication acquisition training. My experience is with home and community-based services as well as school-based services including advocacy and program development. Regardless of the setting, all of the programming is driven by evidence-based assessments, research and data analysis based on the basic principles of behavior analysis. I work with school IEP teams, insurance companies and private families to collect and analyze data driven interventions to justify our services and provide documentation.

My husband and I have two children and two dogs who keep us active outside of our work lives. I understand finding the balance among learning, work, hobbies and family commitments.

I am looking forward to building a working relationship with you and to help you gain a better understanding of Behavior Analysis techniques and interventions to meet your goals!
