Online Webinar: Missed Opportunities for Understanding the Autistic Brain

The BACB Professional and Ethical Compliance Code states: Where differences of age, gender, race, culture, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, or socioeconomic status significantly affect behavior analysts’ work concerning particular individuals or groups, behavior analysts obtain the training, experience, consultation, and or/supervision necessary to ensure the competence of their services, or they make appropriate referrals.

As it is a complex neurological-based disability, it is essential for behavior analysts to understand the cognitive underpinnings of autism in order to provide appropriate services to autistic clients. By learning about these characteristics, BCBAs can start to better align their goals and provide better preventative strategies to the autistic people under their care and direction.”

Participants will be able to:

  • To understand the importance of seeking consultation and supervision from the population they serve.
  • To understand antecedent interventions that support autistic cognitive characteristics
  • To understand how to create goals with their client that are socially significant to their client.

Training will consist of one 1.5-hour webinar, hosted by BC-ABA. BC-ABA will handle all webinar and CEU administration.
