In 2014, Western Michigan University's critical role in preparing professionals to work with children with autism was recognized by the state of Michigan with a special $4 million legislative appropriation designed to increase the university's capacity to prepare new professionals to work in the autism area and to enhance community consultation and outreach services using such technology as internet-based training, distance education and teleconsultation. Now, Dr. R. Wayne Fuqua and the Autism Center of Excellence at WMU is developing a series of video interviews with national experts in applied behavior analysis, autism, and behavioral pediatrics. These videos are designed for board-certified behavior analysts in practice and for applied behavior analysis students in training.


The next video of the series is titled, "Behavioral Approaches to Preparing Children for Medical, Dental and Personal Care Appointments" and features Keith D. Allen (Munroe-Meyer Institute and the University of Nebraska Medical Center).
