Title: Graphs: Training Staff to Create and Analyze Graphs
The BACB® compliance codes (BACB®, 20XX) require that BCBAs, BCaBAs and RBTs demonstrate competency in graphing data (BACB® 2013; BACB® 2018). This workshop will provide a comprehensive review of recent research in the area of graphing and provide guidelines for supervisors to develop training protocols to graph time-series data. While a brief description of each training procedure reviewed will be provided, this webinar will look at the content of training protocols and compare the different procedures. It is understood that those attending this session have a background in training staff.
After attending this session, participants should be able to:● Compare different training protocols and identify the conditions under which one protocol may be better than another.● Identify the most appropriate training protocols to meet the needs of trainers and their supervisees.
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.
