146. Association for Science in Autism Treatment
DAVID A. CELIBERTI (Association for Science in Autism Treatment)
Abstract: The vast array of "proposed treatments" for autism can be both overwhelming and confusing for consumers. Sadly, there is not a shared commitment to empirical validation, research, and data-based decision making amongst providers. The Association for Science and Autism Treatment (ASAT) strives to be an important resource for individuals with autism, family members, professionals, and paraprofessionals, in fact, for anyone interested in reliable, science-based and accurate information about autism and its treatments. Founded in 1998, the mission of the ASAT is to promote safe, effective, science-based treatments for individuals with autism by disseminating accurate, timely, and scientifically-sound information; advocating for the use of scientific methods to guide treatment; and, combating unsubstantiated, inaccurate and false information about autism and its treatment.

Abstract: The European Association for Behaviour Analysis (EABA) is an international organization that aims to promote the philosophy of radical behaviourism and its basic and applied sciences across Europe, and to provide an international forum within Europe for the study and discussion of matters relevant to behaviour analysis. One of the main functions of EABA is to organize conferences in conceptual, experimental and applied behaviour analysis. At present these are held every two years, with the next conference to be held in charming Wrzburg, Germany, September 19 - 22, 2018. Our 2016 conference in Enna, Sicily drew delegates from 37 countries across the globe. Our conferences are low-cost and provide an intimate, supportive atmosphere for scholarly exchange and collegial good will. The EABA also organizes a bi-annual summer seminar, with lectures and courses by accomplished scholars in conceptual, experimental and applied behaviour analysis. Our next summer seminar will occur in lovely Cdiz, on the southwestern coast of Spain, from July 5-8, 2017. The European Association for Behaviour Analysis is a Behavior Analysis Certification Board-Approved provider of continuing education credits. We encourage all behaviour analysts to contribute to, enjoy and profit from our ongoing scientific and educational events.
