Emily Bellaci, LBA, BCBA
Masters in Behavior Analysis


Screen_Shot_2014-10-24_at_9.17.59_PMEmily received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Louisiana State University.  She went on to the University of Houston Clear Lake, where she received her Master of Arts in Behavior Analysis. Emily has worked with children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders in a variety of settings including school districts, clinics, and homes. She has extensive experience creating and implementing behavior change and skill acquisition programs. As a native New Orleanian, she recognized the immense need for ABA services in the area. So, she returned home and is very excited to be able to provide one-on-one therapy and the only ABA preschool in the area. She remains active in her community and is currently the chair of the Louisiana Behavior Analyst Board. To continuously spread the knowledge of ABA and the importance of early intervention, she conducts workshops, gives presentations on data driven procedures to peers, and actively supervises a number of individuals pursuing their BACB certification.
