Join us for this month's free member CEU event, a lunch & learn that includes free lunch!
Presenter:Hanna C. Rue, Ph.D.
Hosted By:Autism Spectrum Therapies
The field of applied behavior analysis (ABA) has contributed greatly to advances in the treatment of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Despite decades of research supporting the use of ABA for individuals with ASD, some funding sources (e.g., insurance companies) deny client requests for ABA. Behavior analysts are tasked with (1) identifying medical necessity, (2) looking to norm-referenced measures for evidence of a client’s need for services, and (3) looking for group-design studies to support assertions of the effectiveness of ABA. In reality, behavior analysts must be familiar with many facets of the healthcare system in order assist clients in gaining access to much needed treatment based on applied behavior analytic principles. This presentation will provide a review medical necessity, norm-referenced measures, and group-design studies and the impact on the practice of applied behavior analysis.
-Participants will review and discuss the medical necessity of behavior analytic skill acquisition procedures for individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
-Participants will review and discuss the importance of group-design studies of applied behavior analytic interventions for individuals with autism spectrum disorder.
This workshop includes 1.0 CEUs for BCBAs.
