One of her life’s missions has been to bridge the service gap in the area of ABA for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Puerto Rico.

Yaniz has received training at the University of Iowa and the Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University’s Neurobehavioral Outpatient Unit.
