Abstract: Behavior analysts are under constant demand to include or exclude information in client assessments and treatment plans. We must be careful to only adopt those requests which are in compliance with federal and state laws, and those which align with our ethical code. This presentation will review common requests made by various funding sources and common errors or mistakes made by behavior analysts. In addition, the presenters will discuss protections behavior analysts can put in place to protect the public and our profession.
