Robbie El Fattal
Besides his high school job as a peanut guy selling peanuts at baseball games, Dr. Fattal has only ever worked in ABA. He loves it. There’s nothing more he’d rather do than work with children with autism and their staff to help produce the life-changing outcomes that kids deserve. He started his career in the early 2000s working in schools and clinic settings under the supervision and training of many of the pioneers in ABA and autism therapy. Dr. Fattal completed his undergraduate degree in Child and Adolescent Development at California State University of Fullerton, and also continued there to complete his masters program and teaching credential. Dr. Fattal was also an administrator in one of the largest school districts in Southern California and supervised their growing autism program.
In addition to his expertise in ABA, Dr. Fattal developed a specialization in organizational behavior management (OBM) primarily through his entrepreneurial ventures and his doctoral training. Dr. Fattal studied under Dr. Amanda Mahoney at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology and conducted his dissertation research in behavioral systems analysis and performance management in a healthcare setting that served children with autism. Dr. Fattal has also served as a board advisor / subject matter expert in ABA and organizational health. Dr. Fattal had the pleasure of building (alongside many amazing teammates) an Austin American Statesman Top Workplace in 2019, and that same organization was honored with a 3 Year Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) Accreditation scoring in the top 5% of organizations.
