Emily Munoz (Class of 2011) began her internship with Behavioral Associates of Central Florida (BACF) in January 2011. She worked for REACH, a division of BACF. The REACH program provides applied behavior analysis treatment and consultation to children with developmental disabilities and learning and behavioral challenges. Their staff work directly with children and also provide training to parents, teachers, and therapists to ensure that each child has an individualized, cohesive plan of care. Their treatment focuses on teaching children the skills they need to improve their behavior. Programs target communication, adaptive, social, or academic skills. Each child's program is individualized and data is collected and analyzed throughout the treatment process to ensure that progress is being made. Emily Munoz, after completing her internship, was offered a full-time position.
