Are you tired of working in Autism? Are you looking to expand your scope of practice, challenge your clinical skills or try your hand at working on an interdisciplinary team? If so, this is the event for you! Historically brain injury rehabilitation teams have worked to integrate programming efforts across disciplines, overcome issues associated with problem behaviors and demonstrate the efficacy of programming efforts. However, until recently the utilization of behavior analytic concepts and principles uniquely suited towards these same goals has been misunderstood, underutilized or simply excluded within brain injury rehabilitation settings. This panel of experts will discuss the growing role of the behavior analyst within brain injury rehabilitation. They will discuss present and future of opportunities for behavior analysts to integrate themselves into this dynamic and growing field. Academic and clinical training opportunities will be reviewed as well as tips for getting started and opportunities to get involved.
