University Training for Behavior Analysts Specializing in Autism Interventions
2010 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The growing number of children diagnosed with autism and the demand for evidence-based interventions has lead to an increase in the need for well-trained behavior analysts. There are only a small handful of programs that are accredited by ABAI and have course sequences approved by the BACB. Even fewer of these programs have formal institutional course approval for classes in autism. The purpose of this paper is to describe a training summit that was held in September of 2009. The purpose of the summit was to consider and discuss a wide range of issues involved in higher education and autism intervention and to produce a special volume of the European Journal of Behavior Analysis that would explore these issues.
