Early on in Vicci’s career, she quickly recognized the need for a structured curriculum and supportive coaching to ensure that learners thrive across environments. In response to this need, she set out to develop the Competent Learner Model.
Vicci has a Master’s Degree in Applied Behavior Analysis from the University of the Pacific and is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Her commitment to the design and implementation of the Competent Learner Model spans over 35 years. Her unique and innovative CLM framework has been a guiding light for learners with autism other challenges in the United States and all over the world.
The goal of Vicci‘s ongoing engagement with the CLM is to create competency for all learners at home, school and community environments. Instrumental to her success and the proliferation of the Competent Learner Model is her collaborative skill in working with instructional teams to engineer each unique learning environment.
