Noteworthy Activity #424G
Meet & Greet and Discussion With Mapy Chavez Askins
Monday, May 31, 2021
1:00 PM–2:00 PM

Historically, there has been a lack of awareness in Latin America regarding information about the real concept, validity, and benefits of Applied Behavior Analysis not only for children with autism but for the field of Applied Behavior Analysis in general. For over a decade Dr. Chavez Askins has been successfully disseminating Applied Behavior Analysis in Peru, and other Latin American countries through evidence-based teaching, services, and research. This session will give the audience the opportunity to ask and share information in regard to:

  • the implementation of services with children with autism, their families, and professionals interested in the field
  • changes achieved and that still can be worked on in Latin America towards awareness and services in regard to applied behavior analysis
  • narriers encountered
  • the solutions that were sought
  • vision for the future of the applied behavior analysis field in Latin America
