The APPLE Difference

Expertly Trained Technicians

APPLE Consulting developed a state-of the-art training system for technicians that must be completed prior to providing intervention with your child on their own.  The system, developed by locally renowned behavior analysts, Drs. Allison Lowy Apple & Christopher Jones includes the following (in addition to the general 40-hour training most companies complete) trainings led by BCBAs:

  • 5 Hour Initial "In-House" training 

  • Two additional 2.5 hour trainings (one instructional & one didactic/with clients)

  • 3 Hours Required Observations of Experienced Certified Behavior Technician

To obtain competency as a Certified Behavior Technician through APPLE Consulting, one must:

  • Demonstrate basic foundational skills with a learner as measured by a BCBA

  • Pass a written examination on basic theory & application
