Dr. Joyce Tu, Ed.D., BCBA-D, Director of Center for Behavioral Sciences was an invited lecturer again this week, at Pepperdine University’s Irvine Graduate Campus.  Dr. Tu’s presentation was entitled “A Brief Introduction to Effective ABA Programs for Individuals with Autism,” for a class of future clinical psychologists.  This provided an overview of ABA and best practices in clinical settings. It is always great to work with a new group of future practitioners, ready to improve lives!

Dr. Tu has over twenty years’ experience providing one-on-one services, training, workshops, and supervision for parents and professionals working with individuals diagnosed with autism and other developmental disabilities.  She is currently an affiliate professor teaching graduate students at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology — focusing primarily on the areas of experimental analysis of behavior, and verbal behavior.

Pepperdine’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology offers rigorous academic programs that prepare students to serve as leaders in their communities, organizations, and businesses.
