The Rehabilitation and Independent Living (R.A.I.L.) Special Interest Group has continued to support the need for expanding the impact of behavior analysis in the field of rehabilitation, neurorehabilitation, and related areas. Through presentations at the ABAI conference and SIG business meeting, the R.A.I.L. SIG helps to maintain dissemination, communication, and collaboration of information that has proven to be of interest to its members. Visit the page to check it out and join/like, the URL is http://www.facebook.com/pages/ABA-Rehab-Special-Interest-Group/118243448217580. Rehabilitation, and specifically neurorehabilitation professionals face unique behavior challenges with the population they serve. When individuals have experienced a disruption in neurological function whether from a traumatic brain injury, brain tumor, stroke or other neuro condition, it is not uncommon for difficult behaviors to emerge. Most allied health professionals, including physical therapists, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists and nurses, do not focus on behavior remediation however in collaboration with behavior analysts can have a significant role in positive behavior change. Issues related to training, student development and research have been and will be reviewed at the SIG meeting. We welcome participants from all treatment disciplines and behavior analysts that currently work in the field of rehabilitation or have interests in populations outside of autism.

Business Meeting #8B
CANCELED: Dissemination of Behavior Analysis Special Interest Group Annual Meeting
Friday, May 25, 2018
7:00 PM–7:50 PM
Marriott Marquis, Del Mar
Chair: Ashley N. Fiorilli (Animate Behavior)
If you are interested in the dissemination of our science of Behavior Analysis worldwide, this is the place for you. We're looking to take Behavior Analysis out of its pigeon-holes, and really publicize the potential to develop global solutions in all realms of life. We've demonstrated our efficacy in the Autism/DD world, and we're really good at proving that our interventions work...to ourselves. We are not as good at getting the word out to those who aren't aware of the science of behavior! This SIG should be of interest to every behavior analyst as without the support of the population, our science will never reach its potential. Every behavior analyst should be continually working to put forward a positive image about our science and its practitioners. Without this component, all of our work will never reach those who need it most.
