Elizabeth Gudiel MA, BCBA, LBA

Associate Clinical Director

I have been in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis since September of 2010 and became a BCBA in August of 2014. I have served several roles from behavior interventionist, field trainer, behavior consultant, program manager, clinical supervisor, and clinical director. I am a mother of 4 and I have two autistic children ages 20 and 17. I am passionate about empowering families we serve, providing them with resources, and knowledge to improve their quality of life. In my spare time I enjoy joining on hikes, dancing Zumba, listening to music, watching movies, and spending time with my family.

Frequently Asked Questions in Salt Lake City

Therapy sessions might take place in your home or community, depending on what the ALP Clinical team recommends. Each session, a Behavior Technician will work one-on-one with your child, targeting individualized goals embedded into fun and functional activities. Sessions can last 2-4 hours depending on your child’s needs. Parent training is always a part of the treatment plan, as we want you to have that support.

Therapy sessions could take place in your home, community, or center environment, depending on what the ALP Clinical team recommends, and if the school and insurance provides approval.

We use evidence based behavior analytic techniques. The specific techniques implemented by the ALP Clinical team are entirely dependent on your child and the goals identified during the assessment. Your Clinical Supervisor will discuss the techniques more during the assessment. It’s important to our clinical teams that the right techniques are selected for your child. There are no one size fits all.

The goal of any ABA program is to help your child work on skills that will help them become more independent and successful. Your team will break down each of your child’s goals into small, concrete steps. The Behavior Technician teaches each step one by one, from simple (i.e. imitating single sounds) to more complex (i.e. carrying on a conversation). ABA therapy can help to improve a wide range of skills including language, communication, attention, daily living skills, and social skills.

There are parent organizations and resources within the Salt Lake City area that may be helpful supplements to ABA therapy. Please contact us for more information.
