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.

Course Description:n 2004, the New York Times wrote that ?no disability claims more parental time and energy than autism. Families dealing with autism face many hardships, not the least of which is financial hardship. One reason for the financial hardship is the failure of the health insurance industry to cover treatments for, and sometimes even diagnosis of, autism. Access to health insurance for individuals with autism has been limited in two primary ways:

(1) insurance was altogether unattainable, as insurers simply refused to write a policy on an individual or family member with autism, or

(2) individuals could obtain a policy, but the policy failed to cover the treatments being prescribed, particularly interventions using ABA methodology.

Recently, there has been a national movement toward legislating meaningful health insurance coverage for individuals with autism. Since 2007, more than 30 states have enacted legislation requiring meaningful coverage for autism spectrum disorders. In this session, we will explore the reasons autism treatments have historically not been covered by health insurance and discuss arguments to refute those reasons. We will examine the language of the new autism insurance laws, including a comparison of their key terms and features. We will learn about the different types of public and private health insurance plans and discuss pitfalls that providers and consumers should watch out for when attempting to utilize benefits. We will talk about strategies for approaching self-funded employers (who are not subject to the new state laws) regarding voluntary implementation of autism benefits. Finally, we will discuss the intersection of various funding streams for autism interventions and examine who should pay for what and when.
