This week's episode features Frances Fishman, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst who does ABA differently. She is also a mom of 3 young children, originally from Toronto, Canada, who moved a year ago to Boca Raton to expand her business, The Play Base. Her goal is to help as many children, families, and educators as possible and change the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. 

Her team offers a play-based, child-centered, child-led, and adult-guided approach to ABA, which incorporates mindfulness, mental health, a holistic view of the individual, and a deep connection as the root and key to their approach in ABA. 

With over 14 years of experience in behavior modification in the home, community, and educational settings, and being a mother of 3, Frances has developed a skill set and a perspective that has allowed her tremendous success with her team and client base. Her goal is to support the growth and development and instill confidence and a sense of self in as many children, parents, caregivers, educators, and therapists as she can because we can flourish when we feel loved, seen, heard, and respected.
