Praise for Jessica Minahan, M.Ed., BCBA

From NESCA

March 17, 2015

This morning, we found this endorsement posted on NESCA's Facebook page which--thank you very much!--is fast closing in on 2000 "Likes." From a highly-respected local advocate, it refers to NESCA Director of Behavioral Services Jessica Minahan


"Jessica's common sense and functional approach is a continuing source of fresh air. Her focus on what the communication is saying rather than on the behavior is key. Re-framing the purpose of FBAs and the ABCs of behaviorial interventions and supports will help children at the core of their challenge areas, rather than merely shifting a less appropriate behavior for one that is more socially acceptable."
-- Jennie DunKley, Special Education Consultant

We're totally with Jennie on that!

In her spare time, Jessica managed to co-author "The Behavior Code: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching the Most Challenging Students," with Harvard Psychiatrist Nancy Rappaport, and more recently, to write "The Behavior Code Companion: Strategies Tools and Interventions for Supporting Students with Anxiety-Related and Oppositional Behaviors."

A speaker in demand nationally, Jess is also an adjunct professor at Boston University and a blogger on The Huffington Post.
