TUCCi’s Newest RBT


Tucci Learning Solutions is happy to announce that Michiko Couchman, a Behavior Analyst in Training in the Monterey region, is the newest RBT in our organization.

Michiko Couchman, M.Ed. joined Tucci in September of 2018, with the goal of bringing her skills and passion for ABA to the company as she works toward her BCBA certification. As a former broadcast journalist, previous English language teacher in Japan, and a military spouse, Michi brings a variety of unique experiences and lessons to the services she provides. She currently works several home cases, and says she genuinely enjoys the challenge of tailoring her work to the vastly different needs of each individual she teaches. She is, of course, buoyed along in these endeavors through the support of all the incredible TUCCi staff and mentors with whom she is blessed to work.

In her spare time, Michi loves dancing, singing/songwriting, learning new languages, and spending time with her wonderful husband and two brilliant, energetic kids.

Way to go Michi!

ANNOUNCEMENT – Congratulations Jessie Wang

TUCCi’s Newest BCBA

Tucci Learning Solutions is excited to introduce Jessie Wang as our newest Behavior Analyst. Jessie recently passed the BCBA certification exam.

Jessie began her employment with our organization on June 18th, 2018 as a Behavior Analyst in Training doing direct service and learning about instruction using the CLM.

She is originally from China. She came to the United States four years ago and graduated from Southern Illinois University in May 2018 with an MA in Applied Behavior Analysis. She moved to California shortly after graduation and swiftly began employment with us in the Monterey region.

Jessie started in this field working with children in clinical setting. She is experienced in implementing district trial training to young children. With continued learning and practice deeper in school and home settings, she is amazed by how broadly behavioral principles and teaching technologies can help to serve the families in need. In leisure time, she likes reading ABA and more non-ABA materials, traveling and making friends.

We are very excited for Jessie for this achievement and look forward to her working as a BCBA with her TUCCi colleagues.

Recently, Dr. Mowfaq Mustafa, Executive Director of the Future Centre in Abu Dhabi, sent me pictures of his CLM Team along with the following comments:

Congratulations in advance, for the possible opportunities for CLM to be implemented in China and other countries. I am optimistic that they too will experience the similar benefits of CLM among individuals with autism and other disorders.


To date CLM has helped many of our young students. We have students who have been able to be integrated into mainstream schools after developing the repertoires that CLM promises to achieve. We also have moved some students from CLM programming to other internal classes that use other curricular programming and they are adapting well.


I have spoken with a number of parents who were happy with the improvement of their children’s behavior and ways of communicating. I congratulate you Vicci and your team (e.g., Dr. Cathy Scutta, Christina Lovaas, Rae-Ann Arevalo, Kristen Wood, Maribel Castillo, Liyu Chen, Nipa Bhuptani, and numerous other CLM Colleagues around the world) for the developments happening also within your organization and the standards that you have placed upon the implementing sites. Our team is happy to comply because they know that such standards assure them of good results for the children.
