Hey there. Welcome.

Well, for those who know me, you know autism is a huge part of my life. It’s not only part of my career, but also part of my family. Autism has had far reaching effects on pretty much every area of my life, in some way or another. So I decided to start a blog about my experience with it.

See, autism is complex. Some might even say, it has layers…like an onion. In fact, in talking with someone the other week, she used the “autism onion” metaphor. And it hit me…THAT was my blog title! So thanks to that special person; you know who you are. You’ve given my blog a name. 🙂

So, this blog is my space to write silly stories, revelations, complaints, frustrations, heart-aches, and anything else that comes to mind. I’m a big sister… I’m a therapist… I’m a soon-to-be BCBA. And, this is my attempt at peeling back the hundreds of layers of autism.

    Hi my name is Elsy and I will start taking my classes in the fall for the BCBA certification. As you know we need our hours to be supervised and I was wondering how do I email supervisors. I know it sounds like such an easy task but I find it difficult and I am stuck because I don’t want to just email any potential supervisor and sound rude. Any tips, suggestions I can follow when asking to be supervised. Thank you in advanced.

      Hey Elsy! Great question… if you don’t already work for an agency that has a BCBA on staff you can use the BACB website to find BCBAs in your area and you can e-mail them to see if any of them can provide you with Supervision. Here is the link: http://bacb.com/index.php?page=100155. Just be sure to only email those who the website signifies are willing to provide supervision. You can email them explaining your situation. Then you can ask them what their fee is. Hope that helps 🙂
