ABA 662 Culturally Responsive Practices in Applied Behavior Analysis


This course examines the ways in which race, class, gender, language, culture, and ethnicity influence the ways in which we perform our main functions as behavior analysts. Students will begin by exploring our own cultural, socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds and then those of individuals from other diverse groups with whom they interact professionally. Students will consider the impact these factors have on functional assessment (including interviewing staff, parents, and consumers), targeting behaviors, measurement of behavior, selecting treatment outcomes, consultation, and training caregivers and staff to provide treatment.
