Dr. Alexandra Rothstein
Meet Alexandra Rothstein, Quebec’s First Certified Behaviour Analyst and Founder of ABC Solutions
Alexandra Rothstein is the founder of ABC Solutions and Quebec’s first Board Certified Behaviour Analyst. But that’s not the only reason Alexandra – or Alex to her close friends – should earn your trust. With more than 20 years of experience as a Behaviour Analyst and Psychologist, Alexandra works with children with autism spectrum disorders; developmental disabilities; and social, emotional, and behavioural difficulties – and she does so with care, humanity, and a genuine interest in helping others. Alexandra is also a member of the Ordre des psychologues du Quebec (OPQ).
A Master’s in Nevada led to a Doctorate in Montreal
Before launching ABC Solutions, Alexandra worked hard to build on her passion for helping others. She obtained a Master’s Degree in Applied Behaviour Analysis from the University of Nevada, Reno and her Doctorate (Psy.D/Ph.D profile) from the Université du Quebec à Montreal under the supervision of Dre. Melina Rivard. Alexandra’s thesis project, “Evaluating the Pyramid Model (PM) and Coaching Educators in Early Childhood Settings in Promoting Social-Emotional Competence and Decreasing Challenging Behaviors in Young Children,” evaluated the Pyramid Model by applying live coaching for educators working in inclusive daycares.
Between her Master’s Degree and Doctorate, Alexandra developed and supervised early intervention programs for children with autism spectrum disorders and developmental delays in home, centre, and community settings in both the private and public sectors. She has also trained, mentored, and supervised many educators wishing to pursue a career in Applied Behaviour Analysis.
A Thriving Private Practice
Today, Alex works in private practice as a consultant serving various families and children, and providing behaviour management strategies and training for parents and professionals. She has also served as Adjunct Faculty for the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and is currently Part-Time Faculty for Concordia University in Child Studies.
Alexandra is very passionate about helping others. She is dedicated to her clients and takes pride in their success. She enjoys working collaboratively with parents and other professionals and understands the value and support potential that everyone brings to the table to help children thrive.
Alexandra is a mom of three daughters, who she loves to spend time with. Her hobbies include exercising, biking, skiing, tennis, yoga, and spending time with her family.
