As a listener to this program, you are well aware of the increasing calls for targeted instruction of students who struggle in various academic areas. While schools take on this challenge as part of the regular teaching program, it is difficult for them to devote 1:1 time to students and really focus on deficits and areas of growth.
Dr. Julie Albanese is the director of Fit Learning in the Inland Empire and Orange County. They provide 1:1 and small group tutoring and instruction. We discuss how it all works, how they do assessments, and the results of their program.
Dr. Julie Albanese earned her Master’s in Behavior Analysis in 2011 from Western Michigan University and her Doctorate in Psychology with an Emphasis on Learning from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and has served individuals and families with autism and other developmental disabilities in Southern California since 2008 as an in-home behavior consultant. In 2017, her professional path crossed the founders of Fit Learning. Since then, Julie has dedicated herself to building a laboratory in her community and beyond guided by the commitment to transform educational practices in the world so that all learners have the capacity to achieve their full potential and greatness.
