My Training Experience


I love to mentor and teach!

 Training Experience

My first training experience goes back to the late 1990s when I presented a workshop related to Autism Spectrum Disorders for both special education and general education teachers.

During the ensuing years (nearly 30!), I have successfully provided training, consultation, and teaching to hundreds of parents, educators, direct care staff, and graduate students.

I have been successfully teaching Behavior Analysis at the graduate level of instruction, both in class and online, for more than a decade.

Why Learn With Us?


Over 30 Years of Experience

I’m not the new kid on the block. 


Over 200 Parents

Parents are teachers, too. Sometimes they just need the tools to get better results.


Supervised Graduate Students

The exam required to become a Behavior Analyst is tough. And requires supervised post-graduate fieldwork. I’ve helped students reach their goals.


Adjunct Professor for 13 Years

I have taught online classes at St. Joseph’s University since 2009. For Lipscomb University, I have taught in person and online since 2014.

Michael LaPaglia

With well over 25 years of experience in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis, I’ve learned an incredible amount about how to put the principles, concepts, and procedures of the field into real world practice. During this time, I have learned how to provide high quality behavioral services for individuals of all ages diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum.

I’ve also found that I truly love to teach. And my love of teaching is not just related to teaching graduate students. Over the years, I have found success in teaching and training both colleagues and parents.
