Abstract: Adopting the practice of cultural humility requires application across all professional practices within Behavior Analysis. Behavioral Leadership in Education, Novel Science, and Dissemination (B.L.E.N.D.), a research lab based out of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Chicago Campus, rises to the call to action to build our behavior analytic repertoires to include additional cultural humility practices within the domains of accessibility and universal design (Wright, 2019; Tervalon & Murray-García, 1998). Building community focused projects that promote the values of the community and individuals require us to understand and obtain information from those we aim to serve (Fawcett, 1991). Presenters will discuss the application of inclusive practices as defined by disability studies (disability models, DisCrit, etc.) as a way to promote potential for access and use for all of its members, not just the majority, in research, community work, and clinical practice.
