Title: Data Collection & Visual Analysis in Applied Behavior Analysis
Recent research has focused on comparing continuous and discontinuous data collection in discrete trials with a particular emphasis on accuracy. This webinar builds on Adrienne Fitzer’s 2015-2016 presentation titled “Data Collection in ABA: Current Trends, Research Updates, and the new Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behavior Analysts”. In the current presentation, Adrienne will offer a new outlook on current trends in research and data driven decision analysis processes. This webinar will leave you questioning whether or not your data are really giving you the information you need.
After attending this session participants should be able to:● Identify the pros and cons of continuous and discontinuous measures of student responding during discrete trials.● Choose a data collection procedure that is sensitive enough to pick up on student progress and mastery. ● Identify how the implementation of discrete trials differs across the literature.● Identify the impact of discontinuous data procedures on the decision making process.
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.
