Posts Tagged ‘ABA Conferences’

It has been a super busy fall! It all started in August when I spoke at the National Autism Conference in State College, PA. I spoke on Special Education Law and also on Ethical Issues in Using ABA to Address Feeding. This conference is actually how Matt Ciccoria and I got introduced. Jen Farris saw me speak on SPED Law and she reached out to Matt and then made the introduction. Conferences are truly for networking! For follow up on the SPED Talk, see my previous blog post.

Next up was FABA Conference! I served as the discussant on a lively panel regarding Ethical Issues in Functional Analysis and presented on the hot topic of Ethical Issues in Assessment. We are working on papers for both of these talks!

This was followed by the 19th Annual CARDAAC Conference in Baltimore with the fine team at Kennedy Krieger. There I spoke on PBIS Strategies at Tier 2 and Tier 3 implementation levels.

Once I finally stopped traveling, I sat down with Matt! I was incredibly nervous about doing this. But Matt put me right at ease. I seriously could have talked to him for hours on this topic! Take a moment to listen to the podcast when you are driving from client to client or school to school. You can download the podcast here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/ethics-school-consultation-for-bcbas-session-101-missy/id1086413253?i=1000457591580 or you can go to the website for all the show notes here: https://behavioralobservations.com/the-ethics-of-school-consultation-for-bcbas-session-101-with-missy-olive/

There is a teaser too! If you listen to the show, you will find out about some upcoming CEs that are available! This special will be available for any of the webinars mentioned in the podcast through 2020!

A lot of people think that conferencing is just about getting CE’s for certification renewal. Conferencing actually has multiple purposes. First, it is an opportunity to learn about a new area of interest. Remember, the BCBA credential is an entry level credential. The scope of practice for a new BCBA is extremely limited. Thus, conferencing can be a great way to start training on a new area/scope of practice.

Regional Conferences (i.e., your state association such as Florida ABA or CT ABA, or Mass ABA) provide an opportunity for you to remain current about issues within your state. Perhaps your state is trying to push for licensing of behavior analysis. You need to attend to be in the know! For Florida, the current issues around medicaid are a key focus for many providers.

Did you know you also have an ethical obligation to your state association? yes! under the BACB Professional and Ethical Compliance Code, 6.01 b), “behavior analysts have an obligation to participate in behavior-analytic professional and scientific organizations or activities.” Therefore, you should conference because it’s ethical!

Conferencing is a great time to network with other providers, scientists, product development teams, and sometimes payors. Put your best foot forward and make those connections!

Finally, conferencing is a wonderful time to see friends and colleagues. Rest up before conferences so you have the energy and stamina to get it all in. Check out these photos from our fun times together.
