Mark L. Sundberg, Ph.D., BCBA-D Presented at the 2015 Michigan Autism Conference
Abstract: It is clear that the principles and procedures that constitute behavior analysis can have a significant impact on individuals with autism. However, with the recent passage of several insurance bills, many are now claiming to provide behaviorally based services. In addition, schools attempting to implement behavioral programs have few guidelines as to what actually constitutes a behavioral program. We as professional behavior analysts need to define our practice in a way that provides clearer guidance and criteria for those claiming or attempting to provide behavioral services. This presentation provides some suggestions regarding what constitutes a behavioral approach to autism treatment.
