All LFLA teachers are selected to ensure they exhibit a strong knowledge of and commitment to our student population. Prior to beginning a position at LFLA, all teachers receive a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) certification. The training and on-going professional development required to achieve and maintain a RBT certification enables them to effectively implement behavior analytic practices and classroom management strategies in an educational and therapeutic environment with their students. Our teachers receive consistent academic and clinical support from our Academic Director, School Director, and on-site Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) to ensure that all students receive the best education they deserve.
