Andréane is a speech-language pathologist holding a certificate of clinical competence (CCC-SLP) from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) and a California license in speech-language pathology. She is also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
This double certification allows her to integrate behavior analytic techniques during speech therapy sessions. She uses tools from each field to maximize the results of therapy. Behavior analytic knowledge is used to teach communication as well as manage problem behaviors that may be present, such as non-compliance, stereotypies, aggression, or self-injury. Andrea specializes in providing speech-language therapy for children who present with such challenging behaviors. Behavioral approaches to communication include functional communication and verbal behavior.
