competent learner model
Tucci Learning Solutions provides home based services for birth to 3, school age children, and adults with a diagnosis of autism, pervasive developmental disorders, other developmental disabilities, and challenging behavioral difficulties. Individualized treatment plans are developed by Board Certified Behavior Analysts after extensive evaluation and assessment. All TUCCi interactions are based on the PLAY LEARN ACHIEVE non coercive model which emphasizes meeting the learner where they are and establishes value by creating a framework where interaction is possible and welcomed. TUCCi BCBAs work in the home with learners and their families with the goal of making it possible for learners to thrive in home, school and community settings. These goals are accomplished by mindful implementation of TUCCi’s Competent Learner Model. Access to a home program may be funded through insurance, your local CA Regional Center, or private pay options. In California, please learn your rights under the Senate Bill 946, known as the CA Autism Insurance Mandate. For more information on the mandated health benefits in Texas, click here.  For more autism Insurance related information visit the Texas Department of Insurance.

We are IN NETWORK with most major insurance companies. Contact us and we will verify your treatment benefits!


Often during the IEP process, schools look for specialized support for students with challenging behaviors. TUCCi provides that support with highly trained teams who work to develop the missing repertoires that students need to be successful in their learning environments. We are proud of our collaborative service model, and strive to provide the most directly effective learning model possible for our clients.
