Tucci Learning Solutions was awarded this certificate of appreciation for our participation in the South County Education Conference. Thank you to the parent group committee from South County for such recognition.
This conference took place this past Saturday, November 11th, and the objective was “to provide families the medical, legal, and educational information about the services and rights of their children with different abilities.”
This year, Tucci Learning Solutions had once again the opportunity to participate providing information about our program and services to the community. We also had a workshop session which was presented by Nancy Kelley and Cynthia Valencia, and we helped out with childcare. We were informed that the event was a total success so we want to take a minute and THANK our wonderful staff from the South County for all of your help.
Attached are pictures from this year’s conference in Soledad. ENJOY!!!!
The rest of the TUCCi team ran childcare for approximately 15-20 kids. They all had a great time!Nancy Kelley – I am grateful for our South County Staff who are the most collaborative, loyal, hardworking group who also love to laugh!

And last but not least. We would like you to share with you what some of our staff had to say about the event:
Last Saturday, San Andreas Regional Center hosted the first Summer Festival of the year and it was incredible, even though the day was “super duper hot”, as expressed by our coordinator Guillermo.
As described by SARC, this is “a family day full of fun and games to welcome the summer while coming together as a Special Needs Community.” During the festival, there was all source of games, entertainment, prizes and much more. If you missed this day, don’t worry, there will be two more Summer Festivals on Saturday, July 15th – Harvey West Park, 300 Evergreen Street, Santa Cruz and Saturday, July 22nd – Rotary Play Garden, 438 Coleman Ave., San Jose. Both events will be from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. So don’t forget to come and join us and stop by our booth (Tucci Learning Solutions, Inc.) to say hello.
Thank you guys for helping out – Guillermo Reyes (and family) & Daniel Juarez, Coordinators from our Monterey Region.
There is a big difference! Our company implements CLM programming. Here is a graphic that helps explain the difference.
We implement CLM programming, not TUCCi programming just like the other implementations around the world.

“Autism Speaks advocate Lorri Unumb works with the nonprofit group to fight for better autism treatment coverage across the country.”

By Ashleigh Holland, State Reporter
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – The parents of children with autism say their needs can fall through the cracks in South Carolina – especially if their families don’t have the insurance coverage they need to pay for expensive treatments.
A bill in the State House now aims to expand insurance coverage for those with autism. Autism advocates are pushing for it to pass, but …
I’m sitting in my office when I get the familiar knock on my door accompanied with, “It’s a crisis and you are needed!” This is the prompt that has me jump up from my chair, pull my hair back into a bun, and run toward the problem. I can usually hear where it is coming from based on the screams and loud banging from one of our therapeutic rooms. I enter the room and assess the situation. Then, …
If you are interested in viewing the possible outcomes of CLM Programming, watch the video, Case Studies.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education produced the following video to document the effects of the CLM. An observer is provided with an opportunity to view how 8 naive learners acquire the competencies to perform successfully in their learning environments (school, home, and community) over the course of a year. Each Case Study illustrates the benefits to each learner and his/her instructors who are implementing the CLM. Parents, Teachers, Para-professionals, and Administrators talk about how the CLM has positively impacted their learners and their learning environments.
Dear TUCCi/CLM colleagues,

This Institute was held in both Spanish and English for families of children with disabilities and or special needs. During this event, the parents had the opportunity to attend various and informative workshops on services and rights of children with disabilities.
“Cynthia Valencia ran the table very well as always!
About 80-90 parents attended and about 25 kids showed up for childcare where Marlene Ibarra and Grisel Ibarra volunteered their time all day and gave pointers to the honor students who also helped from Greenfield High School. Ismael Mondragon also volunteered his time. Thank you all!
We also had the opportunity to interact with parents and other vendors, who are always personable. We also got a chance to see parents from past Tucci services who are always so appreciative and happy to see us!” – Nancy Kelley, South County Regional Coordinator
Thank you for your hard work and for volunteering your time to help out at this Institute Conference. We couldn’t do it without you all.
Shonnet Brand, BCBA and Certified CLM Coach and Coordinator, made me a very happy “camper” this morning. She shared with me that a student she is supervising at Nova Southeastern University first assigned reading this semester is, “The Competent Learner Model: The Merging of Applied Behavior Analysis, Direct Instruction, and Precision Teaching”. Her course is being taught by David Nevel.
Go, Shonnet Brand! Bringing the power of CLM to parent training and producing valuable and replicable results!
Please join me in congratulating, the first university-based Cohort to complete the CLM Coordinator Certificate Program.
These ladies completed a 12 credit program designed to support competencies in managing large scale CLM Implementations. These ladies stuck together for almost three years, across multiple time zones, their own work and personal pressures, and a pause in their coursework due to my unexpected stroke. They committed to learning and growing together, showed genuine vulnerability in their bravery to push themselves and each other outside of their comfort zones and expand their understanding of the importance of this work to assure that learners from around the globe will experience the benefits of the CLM program.
