Successful Integration of Behavioral Technology and Education
Successful Integration of Behavioral Technology and Education: Translating Research into Everyday Practice
Presentations within this symposium highlight the application of systematic behavioral technology and an adherence to data-based decision making both at a global and an intervention specific level. Best practice demands adherence to data-based decision making. This paradigm applies to both global aspects of care such as program outcomes and specific interventions targeting specialized client needs. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) technology should guide and inform practice at every level. The included presentations emphasize how standardized procedures built upon a data-driven decision making framework can improve the educational outcomes of children with intellectual disabilities such as autism. This framework can provides guidance to administrators and practitioners resulting in positive outcomes for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
