Welcome to Teaching Methods That Work! For over a decade there has been immense public, political, and academic concern about the quality of both general and higher education and the fact that the schools are failing to teach our children what they need to know to succeed in this society.

Behavioral Treatment of Autistic Children: Ivar Lovaas (1988) In Historical Perspective

The heart of this continuing education (CE/CEU) module is the film "Behavioral Treatment of Autistic Children: Ivar Lovaas," produced by Ed Anderson (and sold separately through the CCBS Store). This 1988 film is put into historical perspective by a couple of "bookend" papers: Gina Green (2002) traces the lineage of behavior-based approaches to autism treatment, including how Lovaas fits in; and Steve Luce (2006) discusses what has changed in our diagnostic criteria for autism spectrum disorders, and how our treatment methodologies have evolved as various studies have examined the factors that were responsible for the successful outcomes in the Lovaas (1987) study. The five segments of this module are:

1. A brief video segment plus a short reading assignment

2. A paper by Gina Green on the beginnings of ABA for autism treatment;

3. A video segment on the behavioral approach and early work at UCLA;

4. A video segment on Lovaas' early and later work with autistic children, and followup several years later; and

5. A new paper by Steve Luce on what we can learn from studies designed to replicate the Lovaas (1987) study, and evolution of our methodology since that time.

Dr Raymond Romanczyk: Influencing Behavior Analysis (2010)


In cooperation with Karen R. Wagner, PhD and Behavior Services of Brevard, we offer the following CEU opportunity from The (R)Evolution of Behavior Analysis project:


Dr Raymond Romanczyk: Influencing Behavior Analysis.


Dr Raymond Romanczyk is everywhere. From positions of influence in the Association for Professional Behavior Analysts, to the American Psychological Association, to the Association for Behavior Analysis International, to Health systems in the state of New York, Dr Romanczyk is an agent of change. Learn how his acceptance in the psychology department at SUNY during a critical period of change shaped his future professional directions, and allowed him the opportunity to further his interests in evidence-based practices as Rutgers went through a similar metamorphosis. Hear how his work with children, particularly those on the autism spectrum, have made him a contributor to the science of behavior through many outlets. See how he has used his experience in Basic Research, Psychology, Applied Behavior Analysis, and other disciplines in order to affect change in local, regional and national systems. Find out why attending conferences is so important to your continued evolution and development as an agent of change. See how involvement in the organizations and processes that affect your ability to practice may involve work and dedication, but are surprisingly easy to infiltrate. See how attending some early-morning conference meetings may have a profound impact on your ability to contribute in meaningful ways. Get practical tips from an expert regarding involvement within the field, and discover how influencing larger systems in which we practice may be more challenging initially, but can pay off in big ways. This video gives valuable basic information on how to increase your professional involvement in the field of behavior analysis, not only for altruistic reasons, but to benefit your career, practice and opportunities in the behavior analytic community. If you have ever wondered how certification tests are created, or how you could become more involved in the processes of policy and practice, this CEU session is for you!
