The Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) supports the growth and dissemination of behavior analysis throughout the world. As a result, behavior analysts, through multiple efforts, seek to establish ABA services in regions where minimal or no services exist. Through their individual and affiliate work, the members of this panel have all participated in global dissemination of ABA and will gather to share their knowledge and experience regarding the establishment of ABA services internationally. Topics to be covered include: development of programs in higher education with local and partner universities, establishment of affiliated chapters with ABAI, partnerships with local service providers and strengthening of clinical and educational services, practicum and supervision opportunities, the role of networking (including social networking), research and professional development opportunities for local professionals, securing community and government support, and planning for sustainability.
