My Story

Since 2008, I have been providing professional consulting services to clients from the United Arab Emirates and beyond. From strategic planning to innovative solutions, I constantly focus on building an efficient and results-driven relationship. I will work with you to create a customized action plan for yourself or your organization. 

As a lifelong learner and a highly-skilled board-certified behavior analyst, I, Maribel "Belle," have a passion for improving the quality of life for individuals with exceptional needs. With over 15 years of experience in special education, including almost a decade of residency in the United Arab Emirates, I have honed my skills and deepened my commitment to continuous learning. Currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Applied Behavior Analysis, I am dedicated to expanding my knowledge and expertise in the field.

As the founder of Behavioral Teaching Solutions, I provide scholarship programs to families, practitioners, and individuals with disabilities in developing countries, empowering them to become active participants in an inclusive society. I am also an accredited coursework and continuing education provider and a certified Competent Learner Model (CLM) coach and coordinator, utilizing my expertise in Applied Behavior Analysis to guide clients to develop their functional skills and achieve greater independence.

My commitment to making a positive impact extends beyond my work with Behavioral Teaching Solutions. As the founder Association for Behavioral Science (ABS) Inc, a non-profit organization, I strive to disseminate and standardize behavior analytic services to provide opportunities for underserved communities. With a passion for collaboration, I am a sought-after speaker and workshop leader, having traveled extensively to Kenya, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka to share my knowledge, appreciate cultural diversity, and make a positive impact.

With my deep understanding of behavior analysis, commitment to collaboration, and unwavering dedication to making a positive impact, I am an excellent candidate for partnerships and collaborations with organizations, leaders, and philanthropists. By supporting my advocacy, these individuals and organizations can make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals with exceptional needs and promote inclusive communities worldwide.
