Tameika Meadows Obituary, Death – Tameika Meadows, M.Ed., was a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst who formerly resided in the Atlanta, Georgia area. She has nearly twenty years of experience in the field of providing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment to developmentally delayed children and adolescents in a variety of treatment settings, including the home, the school, and the clinic.
Early Intervention, Functional Communication Training, Clinician Support, Staff Training, and Parent Coaching and Equipping Families are some of Tameika’s professional passions. Tameika received her master’s degree in School Psychology from Georgia Southern University in 2008, and she has been working in the field ever since.
Tameika is credited as the founder and author of the blog and resource website known as www.ILoveABA.com. This website is visited on a regular basis by thousands of people all around the world. Tameika offers knowledge, methods, and pointers that are straightforward, useful, and actionable in the areas of behavior analysis and behavior modification on her website.
Tameika operates her own independent practice at this time, during which she offers telehealth consultation services, BCBA supervision, ABA Training, mentoring services, Family/Caregiver Workshops, and behavioral support services to schools and other organizations. Tameika is also the author of a number of Applied Behavior Analysis books and manuals, including:
“101 Ways to do ABA,” which is an introductory resource guide for parents and therapists; “From A to Z: Teaching Skills to Children with Autism,” which is a resource guide for educators; “A Manual: Creating an Autism Intervention Program,” which is a resource guide for practice owners; and “The Practical ABA Practitioner,” which is an invaluable in-the-field resource for ABA practitioners.
The primary objective of choosing an ABA practitioner, according to Tameika, is to consider the intended outcome of the intervention. What objectives do you hope therapy will help your kid achieve? Providers of ABA must speak in a way that prioritizes the needs of the individual. Make sure your needs as parents are understood so that the particular barriers for your child can be met.
Aside from COVID, it is quite concerning when an ABA practitioner forbids parents from visiting, viewing, or participating in therapy sessions. If this isn’t the case, the next step is to have a clear understanding of your approach, objectives, and reinforcement. Every single activity or tool used in therapy should be addressed and agreed upon with parents and professionals so that there are never any unpleasant surprises if a parent peeks in on sessions. Caregivers should participate in and offer their approval to all aspects of therapy.
