Allison Lozes, B.S., M.Ed., CBA, BCBA
I am Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and CBA (Certified Behaviour Analyst) who has worked with children for over 15 years. I am currently the sole clinician and owner of Connect Behaviour Consulting.
After graduating with a degree in psychology from Louisiana State University in 2013, I spent a few years travelling and working with children and families around the world, exploring different cultures and family systems. When I returned home, I worked in a mental health setting supporting youth in rural Louisiana. Shortly after this, I became exposed to ABA and was blown away by the efficacy of intervention and loved that this career allowed me to continue working directly with families in need.
In 2017, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a master’s degree in Special Education and a concentration in Autism & Developmental Disabilities. While living in Austin, I completed my BACB fieldwork experience at a local clinic that offered a variety of individual and group therapy programs for pre-schoolers and school-aged children. Here, I discovered my passion for supporting children to develop friendships and facilitating group therapy programs. I became a Board-Certified Behaviour Analyst in 2018. .
Since relocating to Australia in late 2018, I have worked directly with families and clients managed under the NDIS. I’ve been lucky to work alongside several highly skilled behaviour analysts and speech pathologists, learning how powerful collaborative approaches can be. I have also had the opportunity to work as an associate lecturer for the Applied Behaviour Analysis Graduate program at Griffith University, during which I had the pleasure of instructing behaviour clinicians and students from all over Australia.
I founded Connect Behaviour Consulting with the hope of guiding families to set and achieve their own goals and supporting interdisciplinary teams to work collaboratively in the interest of our clients. For more information about my clinical approach, please click here.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, connecting with friends, travelling, and hanging out with my husband and rescue dog, Rosie
