Autism may be responsible for the explosive growth in behavior analysis and cultivating funding sources for behavior analytic treatments. Paradoxically, could this windfall also mean the end of behavior analysis as it withers from a robust field tackling any and all socially significant behavior, pigeonholed to an albeit noble pursuit of autism treatment providers? Breaking through existing barriers to create new service delivery models requires self-awareness and skill development within and outside behavior analytic skills sets. This panel discussion will lay the foundation for entrepreneurs to break into new service delivery models outside typical funding streams and populations. Topics will include how to design solutions for neurotypical children and their parents, working with technology developers and enthusiasts, and how to obtain skill sets required beyond an ABA grad school program to succeed.
|Instruction Level: Basic
Behavior Analysts looking to expand their area of expertise into areas beyond current models of delivery and funding streams.
|Learning Objectives: Identify 3 markets or industries ripe for behavioral technology development. Identify what constitutes a behavioral technology and how to go about collaborating with professionals outside behavior analysis to build one successfully. Identify 3 soft skills shown to affect professional skill sets and service delivery.
