Private Practice Announcement

Private Practice Announcement

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am excited to announce the expansion of my private practice and the launch of my professional website: www.dana.kuzmanovski.com.

I offer individualized behaviour consultation to families, caregivers, and educators for children and youth presenting with behaviour challenges.

My services include:

  • Standardized and individualized assessments (e.g. skills assessments, functional behavior assessments)
  • Development of individualized positive behaviour support plans
  • Parent consultation and coaching
  • School consultation and school staff training/workshops
  • FSCD Specialized Services support and case coordination
  • Supervision for individuals pursuing the BCBA or BCaBA credential

The guiding principle of my work focuses on empowering parents, caregivers, and educators by teaching practical, sustainable, and evidence-based methods using the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA).

I appreciate all of the support I have received throughout the years, and I look forward to embarking on the expansion of my practice.  I welcome referrals and I look forward to collaborating with you.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Dana Kuzmanovski, M.Ed., BCBA

Board Certified Behaviour Analyst
