Disseminating Knowledge and Professional Recommendations - Beacon ABA Services

Expanding the scope of competence of behavior analysts is critical if practitioners are to apply the science of ABA to help novel populations address issues of social significance as well as for the growth of the field.  In a paper presented at the 47th Annual Association for Behavior Analysis International convention, Dr. Almeida examined how competent practitioners are trained in the fields of medicine and psychology and how their training protocols may have relevance to the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. His presentation included a review of definitions of competence and methods of teaching non-technical skill repertoires that are components of competent practice.  Dr. Almeida additionally presented considerations for how these practices can be adapted to Applied Behavior Analysis and implications for graduate training.
