Liliet Tarrago

Liliet Tarrago has been working at the Ft. Lauderdale location of our Florida Autism Treatment Center since 2011 after completing her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Florida. While providing direct treatment as an autism therapist, she observed the positive impact that changes in behavior can have on the quality of life of children with autism and their families. This inspired her to pursue a career in behavior analysis. In 2013, Liliet obtained her Master of Science degree in Counseling, specializing in Applied Behavior Analysis from Nova Southeastern University and became a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst. A year later, she acquired her certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and has since been working as a Clinical Supervisor for BAI. Liliet trains staff and families in multiple locations including center, school, and home-based settings. She oversees verbal behavior, language acquisition and behavior reduction programs. Liliet also consults internationally providing behavior analysis and consulting services to families overseas in the Caribbean and in South America.
