Mila Dickens' dynamic presentation will focus primarily on effective Applied Behavior Analysis ABA and (Early) Intensive Behavioral Treatment EIBT. She will share the “gold nuggets” that effect therapy as well as the strategic model and curriculum design—why we do what we do. Research-based facts will be shared, and she admits that “some experiential (25 years) truths and opinion may slip out.”
Mila Amerine Dickens MS BCBA founded Central Valley Autism Project, Inc. (CVAP) in 1990. She received her Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology/Applied Behavior Analysis from California State University, Stanislaus, in 1989 and is a charter Board Certified Behavior Analyst. In 1993, CVAP became an invited researcher of the UCLA Young Autism Project international research clinical replication outcome study, replicating the clinical strategies of Dr. Ivar Lovaas (1987). CVAP’s outcome study was published in the Journal of Behavioral and Developmental Pediatrics (Cohen, Amerine-Dickens, & Smith, 2006), and has been cited in hundreds of articles since. CVAP’s contribution to the community has been primarily through Early Intensive Behavioral Treatment (EIBT), implementing the famed Lovaas strategies and treatment “gold nuggets”.
