Continuing Education Courses (CE's) are designed to provide instruction in a variety of areas of behavior analysis. CE's typically involve a video or podcast, some text to augment the presentation, a study guide, and interactive quizzes so you can determine whether you have mastered the material.

In order to access a CE please download any study guides and any text documents available for the unit, and read them for further directions concerning the particular unit you are completing. You will need to save and open them to be able to have them on the desktop while you watch the videos. Many people find that printing the downloads is helpful.

Then begin with the unit segments listed below. Each segment will consist of a video or podcast, quiz questions, feedback on the quiz, and opportunities to retake the quiz to demonstrate mastery. Start by watching the video or listening to the podcast for the first segment. When you are ready to take the quiz, click on the quiz button.

Once you take a quiz, click on the continue button to receive feedback. If you are satisfied with your performance or need to leave for the day, click on the submit button and the scores will be sent to your profile.  You can review where you are by going to your profile at any time, clicking on account settings, and then clicking on the continuing education tab.

If you wish to obtain BCBA CE credit you must meet our mastery criteria of 75% or better on each quiz for a course. Once you have done so, please submit an email to our webmaster (pavlik@behavior.org). She will check your work and if completed at mastery level, will award you CE credits. The Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies is an approved Type II provider of BACB CE's.

Choose this course.

Course Description: The selection of an approach to help children with autism acquire communication skills is remarkably challenging. This talk will review many of the issues that relate to evidence-based practices that aim to improve broad language skills, including the acquisition of an array of verbal operants as well as skills associated with "the listener" (traditionally viewed as receptive skills). While the hallmark of applied behavior analysis involves many hundreds of single-subject designs looking at particular skills, many practitioners attempt to use "packages," that is, an organization of target skills and teaching strategies, including those involving generalization. We will review the evidence that particular packages work, either in terms of outcome measures or in comparison to other packages. We will review several modalities and also consider issues related to the successful transition from one modality to another, including issues related to our ethical responsibilities. Furthermore, consideration must be given to programs/packages that are derived from non- behaviorally based strategies with regard to their evidence for effectiveness. Rather than trying to provide a definitive answer to "Which strategy is universally the best?" guidelines for the most appropriate questions to ask will be offered.

Course Format: 75-minute face-to-face presentation video edited and presented online with review questions.
