Mary Jane Weiss, Ph.D., BCBA-D Presented at the 2015 Michigan Autism Conference
Abstract: The practice of Applied Behavior Analysis gets more complex with each passing year, and the definition of essential competencies continues to expand. Our understanding of how to apply the science and technology of ABA becomes increasingly nuanced and sophisticated with the advancement of research and the development of clinical tools. This presentation focuses on the essential competencies for practitioners that will enable clinicians to remain aware of best practice recommendations, to stay close to the evidence-based nature of our science, and to apply our interventions in ethical and humane ways.
