Testimonials

Testimonials from Parents running ABA Home/School Programmes consulted on (in the past) by Catherine Green BCBA and the team of Associates:

Team: Cathy and Emma

“Cathy and her team enabled our son to make dramatic improvements in remarkably little time. Cathy is honest, caring and full of positive energy. She is quite methodological in her approach and came up with behavioural strategies for our son which proved extremely effective. She has been very prompt to address questions or concerns we have had.

She is very inspiring both as a consultant as well as a parent. Thank you Cathy and team for your invaluable support.”

Team: Cathy and Chris

“Cathy’s management of our programme has inspired us with confidence. She responds promptly and effectively to any issues that we experience, and she keeps the whole team on their toes.”

– A Parent

 

Team: Cathy and Vicky

“Cathy always provided a professional, objective service. She is well versed in the latest research and hence you are always assured that the most current techniques of VB-ABA will be included as part of the programme. Our son has made phenomenal progress under her direction in the space of a year.

Cathy and her team are caring and committed individuals who not only have the best interest of the child but also provide a supportive network for parents at what in my opinion is a very trying and difficult time for most families. Thank you Cathy and team for all your advice and support we could not have coped without you.”

Team: Cathy and Vicky

“Cathy has been a great ABA consultant for us. She has dealt with our daughter’s self harming and has been excellent with creating a good working relationship with our daughters mainstream school. Her report for tribunal was excellent and as such has made it harder for our LEA to remove the ABA. She is evidence based, to the point of driving us potty! – but that’s what you need for a real ABA programme.”

Team: Cathy and Emma

“My introduction to ABA was a call to Cathy Green… best call I made! Cathy and her team are a valuable resource for any parent. From the start, I found Cathy to be very well versed, extremely professional and very easy to engage with. I did not know much about ABA when I contacted Cathy, I was not sure what to expect.. by the end of our first call, I knew one thing: Cathy was the only person I wanted to lead my son’s ABA programme. Her personal and professional experience speak for themsel[ves] but now after working with her and her team I can personally say that starting an ABA programme under Cathy’s lead was the best choice I could make for my family. I am floored by how quickly we saw results and am very optimistic that Cathy and her team are the answer to my son’s success.”

Team: Cathy and Louise

“Our 3-year old son started ABA therapy with Cathy’s team a couple of months ago. We are delighted with the progress he is making, and impressed with the professional way in which the program is run. Cathy and her team ensure that there is objective data to back up the progress he is making, so the results are measurable and quantifiable. At the same time, the whole team is friendly and approachable, and our son enjoys the sessions – for us this is essential for success.”

Feedback from a workshop: ‘The Essential Content and Structure of a Home Based ABA/VB Programme’ presented by Catherine Green BCBA on 28th April 2013

“I found the course very helpful. Catherine presented very important information in an easy and very understandable format. I feel it is her dual role as Mum and BCBA which helps her explain things and thereby empower parents. Thank you Catherine”

“Catherine is great. I felt so lost and confused deciding on the choice of ABA therapy for my son, but the course she presented made so many points clearer in my mind. Catherine provided me with very valuable information so the next stage in my child’s ABA therapy is much clearer. She gave me hope”

“I have been to hundreds of conferences and workshops throughout my career – I have to say the workshop hosted by ABA Tutor[finder] and presented by Catherine Green was simply outstanding. The content was timely and relevant. The focus was on elements of high quality ABA program management. Catherine is a great speaker and outstanding consultant behaviour analyst, but above all, she is [a] warm and friendly person who understands aspects of autism so much better for being [the] mother of an autistic boy herself. Before attending the workshop I felt lost and confused deciding on the choice of ABA therapy for my child but the course she presented made so many points clearer: she simply gave us the standard of high quality ABA therapy. Catherine provided us with very valuable information supported by published data and [anecdotal] evidence from her own work [experience] …… in the field of ABA therapy and as mother of an autistic boy. Catherine is great and I am looking forward to attending her workshops in the future.”
