What Experts are Saying

"The content presentation is excellent, the videos wonderful. The course and concepts deserve all the support that can be given."
Jill Kolar – School Teacher (retired)

"TAGteach is what my father would have wanted for his science."
Julie (Skinner) Vargas, PhD

Effective interventions require thoughtfulness, innovation, and compassion. TAGteach is a robust intervention worthy of the children who need it. 
Rick Kubina, PhD

"TAGteach helped me win a #1 world ranking in karate! I taught my coach how to tag me and I was able to overcome some obstacles and win a world title from NASKA. Introduction to TAGteach is an excellent course! The content was very clear and the format was easy to use. The videos, practice exercises and worksheets combined to make the online learning experience much like an in-person, hands-on class. The material is consistent with the current research and practice in the science of human behavior. I strongly recommend this training to anyone in a position to teach others or help them to develop beneficial habits!"
Laraine Winston, BCBA, LMHC

"I appreciate the behavior analytic approach, as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. I love the application of practice and guided instruction within the online class format, and thought the videos were very helpful (since I was unable to attend a live training)."
Robin Arnall, BCBA, LBA
