Association for Behavior Analysis International: 35th Annual Convention

Lauren Cushing from the Association for Behavioral Analysis emailed me and asked me to share information about their upcoming convention with you. If you're interested in behavioral analysis, either professionally or as a parent, you may be interested in attending this conference.

The Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) is hosting its 35th Annual Convention from Friday, May 22 to Tuesday, May 26, in Phoenix. Of the numerous presentations throughout the convention, a large number of them will focus on autism, the fastest-growing developmental disability in the United States. Below is a brief overview of the components of the conference.

The convention, which will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center, is expected to attract approximately 4,000 attendees from across the globe. Hundreds of experts will present resources and information that parents, teachers and therapists can use to improve the lives of those living with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Presentations will focus on a variety of topics including:

  • Evaluating the interventions available for children with autism and the importance of evidenced based treatment.
  • Moving beyond imitation to observational learning for children with ASD
  • Combating common sources of stress among parents of children with ASD
