There’s a new (to TUCCi) BCaBA in the house!
Tucci Learning Solutions is excited to welcome Courtney Whitcraft, BCaBA to Team TUCCi. We are very pleased that Courtney decided to move from the land of 10,000 lakes and is settling in California.
I am Courtney Whitcraft. I just moved to Monterey from St. Paul, Minnesota.
Ever since I was a child (once I visited my aunt in Cardiff at 9 years old) I’ve wanted to live in California. I have a cousin I visited several times in Pacific Grove, have loved my time here, and decided now is the best time to have a new adventure.
I’ve been in the behavior intervention field most of my career. I went to college in Wisconsin, started working with adults with disabilities and discovered “behavior modification” (I taught a young non-verbal woman to sign and noticed it drastically reduced her aggressive behavior). I decided this behavior modification thing was really great if it can help people live their best functional life, and found a job at an ABA center. I did online schooling at Southern Illinois for the sequence courses and received my BCABA certification in August 2006. I’ve worked in centers, in-home, schools (elementary and high school), group work, individual work, family skills, social skills. I’ve worked with various programs and curriculum (Lovaas, verbal behavior, fluency, Early Start, ABLLS to name a few). I am also trauma informed.
I am an introvert, with a dash of extrovert. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, meditation & mindfulness, reading, hanging with my 2 cats, live music, vinyl, paranormal investigations, energy work, exploring, new adventures, & relaxing at a beach or pool.
I’m excited to be here at TUCCi and in California!
Thanks for being a new member of Team TUCCi Courtney!

TUCCi’s Newest BCaBA
Tucci Learning Solutions is excited to announce that Megan Reynolds, BCaBA as joined Team TUCCi. Megan is working in the Santa Cruz region.
Here is an introduction of herself…
Hello! My name is Megan and I am happy to be a part of the Tucci team working as a BCaBA. My previous job was working for a company called Autism Living Leisure & Education Nurturing Inc. (A.L.L.E.N) in San Jose. The company is contracted with SJUSD and I worked as a behavior therapist supporting students in the school setting as I worked on completing my BCaBA. I got my BCaBA through Florida Institute of Tech (FIT) and I highly recommend their online program. My husband and I (and frenchie Otis and chickens) are new residents of Santa Cruz County and absolutely love it. In my free time, I love to garden, hike, exercise, beach, and camp in the RV.
Welcome to TUCCi Megan!
Please help us congratulate Elsa Solorio, from the Monterey region, in becoming a newly certified Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). Elsa joined Team TUCCi on 02/19/2020 as a Behavior Analyst in Training.
She is currently working on my BCBA coursework and will be done by November 2021. She loves to travel and have been to 13 countries. Her favorite things in life include her family, being active, and learning new things.
We look forward to hearing more about Elsa’s next professional achievements and are pleased that she pursued her RBT certification.

Jessica has enjoyed working at TUCCi for the last two years and feels very lucky to work with such an amazing team of individuals. She loves to learn and hopes to continue to expand her studies and schooling in order to hopefully become a BCaBA in the future.
In addition to working for TUCCi, Jessica has also been a yoga teacher for the past 10 years and enjoys leading yoga teacher training programs. Her hobbies include playing guitar, reading, being outdoors and watching a good show with her husband and two cats.

When we first learned in March that COVID-19 would keep us and most of our clients at home… we suddenly realized we were ready!
Tucci Learning Solutions and the Competent Learner Model learned how to manage and move forward with the challenge presented. We were ready. We adapted. We can move forward with confidence now. Thanks to each of you for bringing CARE and skill and collaboration to fruition. Below are Team TUCCi’s Top 10 successes of 2020:
1. Staff who provided in-person services did an awesome job of following safety guidelines, making working during a pandemic as safe as possible.
2. Started the Maxstar Project in China.
3. The determined Chinese translation team continued this difficult task throughout the year.
4. Conducted CLM Coach in Training MasterClasses (in-house).
5. Teams and office staff mastered Zoom for instruction, coaching, and meetings.
6. Figured out a new balance of working from home and family life… still a work in-progress!
7. Problem solved the various technical insurance requirements for successful TeleHealth services and TeleHealth billing.
8. Expanded implementation of precision teaching and fluency instruction.
9. Increased utilization of CLMMIS for program development and monitoring.
10. We now have 3 clinical directors instead of two: Christina Lovaas, Maribel Stikeleather, and Deena Hilmanofski.
Please take a minute to review the following research/study information shared with us by Cassie Gonzales, a clinical psychology Ph.D. student researcher at the University of Southern California studying under Jonathan Tarbox, Ph.D. BCBA-D.
Your input/participation in this service study will be greatly appreciated.
Anne Wormald is a BCBA at Tucci Learning Solutions. Anne is visiting her parents in Canada. Anne is running a virtual lesson with her learner along with Hailey Popma who is a Behavior Specialist in Santa Cruz County in California.
The learner told Anne how many snowballs to make if each one needed to be bigger or smaller than the last, and in which order they went. Then he told her what parts it needed, how many, and where they went.
Next, they told him the snowman was lost and that they needed an address and phone number for USPS to get him home. Once he was home, Hailey had the learner make him a name tag, and the learner practiced sounding out the letters and writing them as well as his address and phone number so the snowman wouldn’t get lost again.
This is an awesome example of making learning fun during virtual instruction. Way to go Anne and Hailey!

Team Tucci Leaders learning all about their LeaderPrint™…it’s gonna be a great learning journey. Competent Learner Model (CLM)
What’s YOUR LeaderPrint™?
Today Tucci Learning Solution is sharing this awesome instructional resource among our colleagues. Thank you, Tara Tuchel @autismlittlelearners for such a wonderful wildfire social story.
We start with CLM Teacher Training (Competent Learner Model) – an educational and therapeutic program for children with autism.
Colleagues from the CLM Center of Excellence in California, USA (https://www.clmcenterofexcellence.com) will work with a team of special teachers for three years to implement the program in Bulgaria for the first time.
Specialists from New Bulgarian University also participate to provide training and support to more Bulgarian professionals in the future.
The CLM program is the basis of the classwork with children with special educational needs in the autistic spectrum, starting from September at Primary Progressive School 3-Slatina, Sofia.
Thanks to our special teachers and the parents of the pilot class who trust us with their children!
Good luck TUCCi BCBAs, Coordinators, and Behavior Specialists who are kicking off the virtual 2020-21 school year. This is a good reminder of why TUCCi Behavior Specialists play an important supporting role in school programs. Supportive while teaching and reinforcing participation and independence.
This week some of the TUCCi staff who will be working with learners in school programs in the Monterey region attended the technology and virtual instructor training that was held at TUCCi headquarters.

A New RBT At TUCCi – Kayla Rolfe
TUCCi Learning Solutions is excited to announce that Kayla Rolfe from the Tuolumne region officially became a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT).
Kayla started working for TUCCi about two years ago as a Behavior Technician, which was her first introduction to ABA. She has really enjoyed working with her colleagues during the last two years. The people she works with inspired her to pursue her RBT. Currently, Kayla is pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies which she is hopeful to complete in two years.
During Kayla’s free time, she enjoys writing, reading, hiking, and spending time with her significant other.
“I hope to continue to grow my skills within the world of ABA and look forward to more years working with the Tuolumne county team. “
Thank you to the supportive Tuolumne region team who are an inspiration to Kayla and supports her in furthering her professional development.
#TeamTUCCiRocks #CLM #Competentlearnermodel #playlearnachieve #RBT
Some Team TUCCi Behavior Specialists in the Monterey region participated in technology training to better prepare themselves to support learners for virtual school cases.
This small training group met in the training room at TUCCi headquarters in Marina, California. This was the first in-person training this summer at HQ due to the pandemic. Usually, the training room is hustling with staff coming and going during summer with fun training sessions! The attendees did a wonderful job respecting the safety of colleagues by practicing social distancing and wearing masks.
Thank you to Karrie Hatfield, Program Coordinator for MPUSD and SCUSD school districts who provided the group with the most up to date information from the districts about virtual support, Kristen Wood and Zachary Tsuchida for assisting attendees and their technology in person and Rae-Ann Arevalo, for facilitating the training from a remote location.
Two more technology training sessions are scheduled for this week. One is for Behavior Specialists in Carmel school district and one is for South County.
This training is offered for all TUCCi regions who are virtually supporting school cases while schools remain closed due to COVID-19.
The instructor is doing an amazing job setting the young learner to participate in the Observer (imitate) repertoire. The best part may be that they are both having fun!
What a great first CLM Coaches Network Meeting today! It was so great to come together as an international coaches team to support one another, share resources, and problem-solve solutions! CLMers across the world are doing amazing things for kids during this very difficult time! We are looking forward to more coach meetings throughout the year!

A New BCBA in the Monterey Region
Tucci Learning Solutions is excited to announce the much-anticipated arrival of Amber Clayton, BCBA. Amber’s move to California from Germany was delayed due to the pandemic. She is finally here and has already connected with a number of her TUCCi colleagues.

In her free time, Amber enjoys international travel and any activities that are outdoors; especially if they can include her 3 dogs, Huck, Rocky, and Val.

Belle is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), an ACE provider, and a certified CLM coach. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Applied Behavior Analysis and is ultimately interested in facilitating the implementation of behavior analysis and CLM in underserved parts of the world.

When they travel, Belle provides pro bono workshops to less privileged families, schools, and communities whenever there is an opportunity.

Dingxin is a Behavior Analyst in Training in the Monterey region.
A little about Dingxin…
I formally joined Team TUCCi in January 2020. But I am not a new person to the company because I have been taking the training to become a BCBA and the CLM with the company remotely since 2018.
I am an associate senior psychiatrist in China for over 12 years. In 2014, I furthered my study in Healthcare management at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In 2016, I started my Ph.D. with special education and leadership at Concordia University Chicago. In the meantime, I finished the applied behavior analysis sequential course with Florida Institute Technology.
My career goal is to implement the CLM program globally, especially in China. I want to make the whole service chain through diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, research, caregiver education and educators based on the CLM in China.
In my spare time I love cooking, listening to music, watching drama television series, like the Good Doctor and The Big Bang Theory.
Thank you Vicci gives me the position to work with the amazing team!
The 2020 CLM Conference aims to engage the expanding global CLM implementation community through presentations to ignite dialogue and collaboration on the cutting-edge implementation, research and real-world examples of achieving impact for all learners using the CLM System.

Another new TUCCi Coordinator of Services
Ismael (aka Ish) began working in the Monterey region in May, 2016 providing direct service and then became a Professional Sub as part of his Coordinator in Training experience.
The following is Ismael’s reflection about his experience with TUCCi:
“It’s been such an amazing experience working at TUCCi. From my interview with Maribel and Gary who really made me feel welcome right from the start, to attending the CLM 5 Day Academy that helped prepare us for our first cases, to being mentored and coached through the CLM Course of Study units in order to have a better understanding of what it is that we do and being exposed to the curriculum and contingencies we implement for the learners we serve .
TUCCi really is a family orientated company. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work and be influenced by all the BCBA’s and Coordinators that guide and support us, everyone at the office, and all the staff I get to interact with. I’m excited to continue to grow and learn together!”
Pictured with Ismael is Anilu Rodriguez who is a BCaBA in Training in the Monterey region.
Maria Mendoza recently completed the training process to become a Coordinator of Services. She works in the Monterey region and is also a Professional Sub and a RBT. Maria began her journey with TUCCi in October 2015.
Below is Maria’s response when asked to share about her experience with TUCCi.
“I am happy to work for a company that offers opportunities for growth with support along the way. Additionally, I am fortunate to continue learning something new everyday by working as a team and making a difference in our learners’ lives. Special thank you to Liz Hernandez who has been an amazing mentor coordinator! “
In her free time Maria loves to spend time with her family, read and hike.
A little bit about Said…
Hello, my name is Said Ortiz and I’m currently a Professional Sub in the Monterey County region.
I’ve been working with TUCCi for about 10 years now. One of my favorite things about my job is I get the opportunity to work with diverse learners and staff. It’s very reinforcing walking into a setting and feeling welcomed by our learners and staff.
On a personal side I enjoy watching sports, basketball, football and of course soccer.
Said participated in the RBT training provided by TUCCi through the CLM Center of Excellence.
He is a Coordinator in Training, developing a focus of providing parent training to Spanish speaking families.

Devin joined Team TUCCi in September of 2015.
I am a Coordinator in the new Austin Texas Region and I have been with TUCC for a little over 4 years!
When I have free time I am typically painting, drawing, or making something artsy out of odd mediums. A fun fact about me is that I like watching documentaries about almost anything.
My next professional goal is to complete the CLM Coach Certification process! When I first started with TUCCi, I would have never guessed this journey would have led me here! I have had so much personal and professional growth since working at TUCCi and I am so excited to see what happens next! (So are we Devin!)
– Devin Koehler
Way to be the first TUCCi RBT in Texas!
Before working in education I was pursuing a career in Media Arts and animation but after working in education I shifted my career path and received a degree in Child Development. I’ve been working in special education for about 8 years now.
I enjoy drawing, crafting, and watching movies in my spare time. I also make my own jewelry and enjoy dancing.
I started working with TUCCi in April of 2017 in the Santa Clara region. I appreciate TUCCi and the opportunities they have for professional development. I hope to continue to improve and grow professionally.
Thank you Diana for your efforts in completing the RBT training that was offered by Tucci Learning Solutions through the CLM Center of Excellence.
Congratulations on your new professional certification.
A little information about Maddie….
Before joining TUCCi, I received my degree in Child and Adolescent Development from SJSU and proceeded to work with children for a few years. I did not anticipate that I would work with a wide range and variety of learners with special needs. I certainly would not have if it weren’t for the encouragement I received from a few close friends who thought it was a career path well suited to me and worth pursuing.
I decided to take the plunge and I am very glad that I did. I got a lot out of my time with Tucci Learning Solutions, and I am confident that the knowledge and experience I gained here will serve as an asset for me as I move forward in my professional journey. I hope to soon get into grad school and pursue an MS in Clinical Psychology and become an MFT.
– Maddie Dias
Maddie is a Coordinator in Training in the Santa Clara region. She joined Team Tucci in October, 2016. She completed the RBT training coursework offered by Tucci Learning Solutions by the CLM Center of Excellence.
Prior to joining TUCCi I was a slimy slug at UCSC where I studied Philosophy. My main interest was in moral development from a mythological perspective, the philosophy of other minds and philosophy as a public good beyond academia.
Working for TUCCI has been the best working experience I’ve ever had in that caring about my learners, helping them progress towards independence and working with a great team are the main ingredients for a fulfilling and fun time.
During my free time you can catch me at the beach, a baseball field, on my bike or playing Super Smash Bro Ultimate.
Pedro is a Coordinator in Training in the Santa Cruz region. He joined Team TUCCi in July, 2018. He participated in the 40 hour RBT training offered by TUCCi through the CLM Center of Excellence.
Here are Amber Castagna, BCBA, and Robyn Eads, Coordinator (Santa Clara Region), happily participating in today’s career fair at West Valley College.
“We have enjoyed being able to explain our curriculum and our day to day successes to those who have been interested. We have been able to hand out business cards and get some emails of potential future employees. We are hopeful this will bring more growth to the santa clara region.”
Rebecca is currently living in Colorado and studying at Clarion University to become a BCBA.
The Santa Clara region staff represented Tucci Learning Solutions in the Disability Awareness Day event at City Hall in San Jose, CA on Thursday October 3rd, 2019. Amy Adams (BCaBA & MFT), Robyn Eads (Coordinator) and Erin Moulton (BCBA) did a wonderful job meeting people and disseminating information about ABA and Competent Learner Model (CLM) in their city.
THANK YOU TUCCI TEAM!
Annually San Andreas Regional Center (SARC) recognizes individuals and businesses that they work with by hosting a Service Above Self Award ceremony.
This year, Danielle Chiala from Team Tucci will be receiving the Support Provider of The Year award at an awards banquet on Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 in Campbell, CA.
The recipient of this award demonstrates outstanding performance in providing services to clients. The provider overcomes professional and personal challenges and ensures the client receives the support that they need.
Danielle is the Regional Coordinator for the Santa Cruz region. She stepped up to this position when the region was opened a few years ago. She is leading this fastest growing region and continues to provide direct service, coordination and regional coordinator duties without hesitation with the learners and their families. She is a CLM Certified Coach and a RBT. Danielle also conducts some of the Day 3 trainings across all regions. She is also a mentor coordinator for multiple Coordinators in Training (CooriT).
Numerous glowing responses by colleagues provide an accurate description of Danielle. Some of these state that Danielle is “an amazing instructor and coach.” “You can never tell she is having a bad day. She puts the learner and staff first.” “How can she balance all that she does?” “She easily relates to families and we learn from her all the time.” “Danielle knows the CLM, implements the CLM and is enthusiastic to share it with others. It is contagious!”
Along with her job duties, Danielle currently is studying to become a BCBA through Clarion University.
Danielle joined Team Tucci on June 27th, 2006. Before that she was a classroom teacher and was involved with a district CLM implementation in Hollister.
Our company is privileged to have such amazing dedicated employees like her.
A LITTLE ABOUT SOPHIA
Sophia is a Coordinator in Training in the Santa Cruz region. She joined Team Tucci on October 24th, 2018.
If you ask Sophia what is one of her favorite things about her job she will tell you that is the ability to see her learners’ improvements and know that she is part of their success.
Sophia is working on completing her undergrad classes in Psychology by May 2020. Her goal is to pursue a Masters degree and become a Behavior Analyst.
On a personal side, Sophia loves to dance. She is also a Zumba instructor.
Tucci Learning Solutions is excited to share the news that there is a new BCBA in our organization. Chiemeka is in the Monterey region and started with TUCCi on June 10th, 2019.
Previous to joining Team Tucci, Chiemeka worked in various positions in the educational and ABA fields. He was introduced to ABA in 2014 at Life Applied where he worked as a behavior therapist. At the Vista Real Charter School, he was a paraprofessional. And at Passport To Adaptive Living (PAL), he was a coordinator before starting as a Behavior Analyst in Training at TUCCi.
Chiemeka is continuing to learn about the CLM as a behavior specialist, coordinator and BCBA.
During his leisure time Chiemeka enjoys traveling, photography and being active.
WAY TO GO CHIEMEKA!
Yesterday, Tucci Learning Solutions participated in another career fair at CSU Monterey Bay in Seaside, CA
It was a wonderful event meeting potential future employees. Rae-Ann Arevalo (Director of Staff Development) and Sandra Wilson (Staffing Coordinator) were happy to represent our great company at this event.
Tucci Learning Solutions, Inc. will have a table booth at this event. Don’t be shy and stop by our table to say hello!
We are so excited for Dr. Megan Miller to present on Ethically & Effectively Navigating Challenging Behavior on September 27, 2019, from 9:00-3:00 EST.
Description: This training focuses on going beyond the typical training provided on functions of behavior and behavioral assessment to provide attendees with a more comprehensive understanding of how to navigate challenging behavior. Dr. Miller provides an overview of how to truly conduct functional assessment and analysis and briefly reviews research in support of advancements in functional analysis technology. She then provides a deeper dive into considerations relating to the ethical and flexible application of extinction and alternatives to traditional extinction procedures. This workshop concludes with exploring the ethical considerations and side effects of forced prompting and traditional escape extinction procedures by drawing from the BACB Ethical and Professional Compliance Code and Van Houten et al. (1988). Additionally, Dr. Miller will explore how the 7 Steps to Earning Instructional Control addresses these ethical considerations and whether research in the basic or applied areas supports alternatives to forced prompting such as the 7 Steps as viable options for reducing escape maintained challenging behavior.
This event is being offered for 5 ethics CEUs!!

Join us for a free LIVE WEBINAR training on September 27, 2019 from 9:00 – 3:00 ET.
Dr. Megan Miller, PhD, BCBA-D, LBA, will instruct a 5-hour course entitled Ethically and Effectively Navigating Challenging Behavior.
This training focuses on going beyond the typical training provided on functions of behavior and behavioral assessment to provide attendees with a more comprehensive understanding of how to navigate challenging behavior. Dr. Miller provides an overview of how to truly conduct functional assessment and analysis and briefly reviews research in support of advancements in functional analysis technology. She then provides a deeper dive into considerations relating to the ethical and flexible application of extinction and alternatives to traditional extinction procedures. This workshop concludes with exploring the ethical considerations and side effects of forced prompting and traditional escape extinction procedures by drawing from the BACB Ethical and Professional Compliance Code and Van Houten et al. (1988). Additionally, Dr. Miller will explore how the 7 Steps to Earning Instructional Control addresses these ethical considerations and whether research in the basic or applied areas supports alternatives to forced prompting such as the 7 Steps as viable options for reducing escape maintained challenging behavior.
This event is being offered for 5 ethics BACB CEUs. Clarion University will provide ACT 48 CEU’s. Other professionals can download the certificate and use towards other professional CEU requirements. In order to earn the CEUs, at the end of the event, you will need to complete a quiz with attendance verification codes. You will then receive an email providing you with a link to download your Certificate.
