We possess a powerful science. The effectiveness is so powerful that there has been rapid growth over the past 10 years in the number of practitioners, availability of funding sources, and demand for access to treatment. This is a good thing, right?


This workshop will discuss the answer to that question by exploring new ideas, approaches, and practices that are growing in popularity within the field of behavior analysis. The questions we should ask to evaluate the functional value of new treatment approaches and the need for on-going clinical practice standards to ensure we remain a science of human behavior.
During the presentation we will review some “old” treatment approaches and examine emerging “new” treatment approaches, cultural considerations, and impact of rapid growth has had on the quality of ABA services.
