Jay Johnson has worked in the field of Applied Behavioral Analysis since 2015. He had been working with children with special needs for four years prior in the roles of special education teacher and instructional tutor, respectively. Fascinated by the rate of success he saw the science of ABA have on clients as young as two years old to as old as twenty-six in the realms of both behavior reduction and skills acquisition, he returned to school and completed a Master in ABA at National University. The degree helped him elevate from being a behavior technician to a program supervisor, a role that he works in now. When he’s not working, Jay enjoys anything related to music, fitness, writing, traveling, and of course, food.
