Beginning on January 1, 2022 the BCBA examination will be based on the BCBA/BCaBA Task List (5th ed.). This webinar will inform supervisors, university/college instructors and practicing behavior analysts on the specific revisions made to the 4th Edition Task List. During the first half of this webinar, Adrienne will provide a comparison between the 4th and 5th Editions of the Task Lists in the areas of data collection and graphical displays, and offer suggestions for those who are designing supervision sessions during the transition period. During the second half of this webinar, Adrienne will provide a summary of the 4-part course and present case-studies for participants to work on.
After attending this session participants should be able to:● Differentiate between requirements from the 4th and 5th Edition Task Lists.● Identify appropriate activities that can be used with supervisees during the task list transition period to make sure they are versant in both.● Prioritize next steps when presented with case studies.
Adrienne Fitzer, MA, BCBA, started working with students with autism in the Washington, D.C. area 20 years ago as an undergraduate majoring in psychology at the University of Maryland. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa, she continued working in the field and attended the Learning Processes Sub-Doctoral Program in Psychology at the Graduate Center, Queens College, City University of New York. She holds a master's degree in psychology from Queens College, City University of New York, and has held board certification in behavior analysis since 2003.
Ms. Fitzer completed her doctoral course work, on campus, in the Learning Processes Program offered by the Graduate Center, Queens College, City University of New York, which at the time, was one of few programs in the world accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis International. As a doctoral student, Adrienne was a recipient of a teaching fellowship, a research fellowship, co-chaired on-campus conferences, and spent much of her time working with Dr. Lanny Fields in his stimulus equivalence research lab. She recently returned to finish her doctorate and is working with Dr. Bertram O. Ploog on a line of research in emotion recognition in autism spectrum disorders.Ms. Fitzer has co-edited two books on ABA and autism, Autism Spectrum Disorders: Applied Behavior Analysis, Evidence and Practice (2007, 2013) and Language and Autism: Applied Behavior Analysis, Evidence and Practice (2009) and is co-author on papers published in the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior.
From 1996-2012, Adrienne Fitzer provided quality applied behavior analysis services to children with autism in various positions in home programs, private schools, and public schools. In 2011, Ms. Fitzer realized that she could combine her passion for teaching applied behavior analysis and working with those who care for and work with learners with autism and related disorders by focusing on parent and professional training. She opened The Applied Behavior Analysis Center (ABAC) in 2013 to achieve that professional dream. Her current interests include ethical behavior of professionals who have, or who are developing an internet presence, efficient but accurate data collection, and online consumer behavior.
