The purpose of this web site is to support those interested in using Precision Teaching and Standard Celebration Charting.
I welcome any comments or feedback you have on this website.
Received an undergraduate degree in psychology
and a master’s degree in special education
with an emphasis on applied behavior analysis.
Worked as both a behavior analyst and
special education teacher using both
effective teaching and behavioral change
practices with a range of
learners with disabilities.
Research focuses on explicit instruction
and methods for
facilitating instructional decision-making.
I also take a keen interest in providing my readers and students
with referrals to valuable teaching resources for all walks of life.
In my 17 years in the educational industry, I have come to know
some trusted peers whom I have either used personally or someone close
to me has used and recommended. Just last week a friend shared with me
the career-boosting experience she had undertaking a set of massage courses
with a reputable Australian massage training school. When someone speaks so
glowingly of an educational resource, I feel it is my duty to share that
provider as I know that quality education equips people with the
knowledge to not only better their own lives, but also the lives of
the people they serve through their chosen profession.
I am also happy to answer any questions you may have,
here is just a recent question I received…
“Hi, My brother and I are both forklift drivers but are wanting
to expand our skill set by learning to operate heavy vehicles such as
trucks and bobcats. Do you know of a truck driving school Sydney
based that could help us get licensed for such vehicles?
Regards, John Terry
I was happy to let John know of a driving school that my very own nephew
had used 3 years prior to obtaining his truck license. My nephew had mentioned
about the patience and professionalism with which that school conducted
it’s training so I was more than willing to refer John and his brother to their service.
If you have a similar question about seeking a particular education resource
please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to get back to you with
any information on a resource I may have heard good things about.
When I recommend any course, in any particular field I do so with the utmost confidence
because I have either attended one of their courses personally or had the privilege of being
invited as a guest, much like last week when I got asked to attend one of
Sage Aged Care courses and found it to be one of the most informative and thorough
training sessions on the market.
