Tyla Frewing, MSc

Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)

TF 2015

Tyla Frewing is a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst and holds a Master of Science in Applied Behaviour Analysis from St. Cloud State University. Tyla has worked with children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) for the past 16 years.

Tyla designs comprehensive behaviour analytic programs for individuals with ASD ranging in age from 3-21, in home and school settings as well as ABA teaching home settings. Tyla is currently a doctoral student at the University of British Columbia and her current research interests include stereotypy, comparative research on instructional strategies, and evaluations of learner preference.
