Testimonials at TCSPP
My education at The Chicago School provided a solid foundation in the principles of clinical psychology in the classroom and through real-world experience. This set the stage for me to be able to provide quality behavior analytic services to individuals with disabilities. I take great pride in my profession and the ability to apply my knowledge and skills to assist people through Instructional ABA Consultants.
