We have a passionate and vibrant staff that wants to see your child succeed.
Owner & Director
Carla opened In Our World TLC because she felt the need to do ABA her way - with a strength based, family-involved, fun, and functional format. She brings a unique blend of backgrounds to her role as the Owner and Lead BCBA/Director. She is a parent of an adult with moderate autism spectrum disorder (ASD), has worked as an educator, has a medical background, and is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. So not only does she bring over 25 years to the field, but she lives it everyday. She is passionate about her work, the quality of her staff, and her learners success. Carla uses a collaborative and compassionate team concept with her families, her learners, and her staff. In developing this company culture, she believes in providing top quality services that concentrate on social, functional, and language skills by building strong relationships.
We call this ABA with a Heart!
She has presented at national, state, and local conferences, parent support groups, schools, and other organizations on a wide variety of topics. Carla is available to speak to your organization, district, or parent support group. She is also available for private or school consultations.
