Congratulations Mollie Salter-Prescott, Board Certified Behaviour Analyst!
Congratulations to Mollie Salter-Prescott who recently sat and passed the notoriously difficult exam to become a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst! After her Masters Degree in Applied Behaviour Analysis at Bangor University, Mollie completed 1500 hours supervised clinical practice, latterly with support from Green Light’s Senior Behaviour Analyst, Ioanna Konstantinidou a Masters graduate of the Tizard Centre, University of Kent. Mollie works as part of Green Light’s PBS team of UKSBA registered behaviour analysts who provide support to our teams working across Green Light’s homes in Cornwall, UK. Mollie has an active and varied caseload but has most recently been involved in the transition of a young man with learning disabilities into his new home. The team have, with Mollie’s coaching, been helping this individual to develop their communication, coping and other life skills which has improved relationships and overall quality of life. By having these skills actively encouraged by the team in a focused way, the person has been able to avoid behaving in the harmful or challenging ways they might have done historically, before this kind of support was offered.
Mollie and colleagues are also currently working on new autism, learning disability and communication training modules for Green Light employees with film maker Andy Lawrence, after reviewing current evidence-based approaches in the literature. This will compliment the new Positive Behaviour Support training being developed by the team which has been revised to act as a primer or introduction to the Registered Behaviour Technician training for adult autism services being developed as part of Ioanna’s PhD research project with Queen’s University Belfast.
