ABSTRACT: Not only is it our responsibility to remain up to date on information about our field, it is also our ethical obligation. In this training, the presenters will review some helpful resources and strategies that analysts can employ to ensure they are up to date in their own practice. Attendees can learn from one another about obstacles faced when practicing as a behavior analyst across the islands. While open to the public, this training is intended for behavior analysts and will be addressing matters that go above and beyond what is covered on the BACB task list.

She earned her Master’s in Education (Counseling) from University of Hawaii in 2008. Anne spent six years working up from the chair at an intensive learning center, teaching a wide variety of students in intensive intervention, and seeing first-hand the power of quality ABA to take severely impacted children with limited vocal skills all the way to mainstream classrooms without assistance. Anne was chosen to travel to Tokyo, Japan, on several occasions to assist in providing service and supervising programs. Anne has great experience performing language, academic, and adaptive behavioral assessments and has presented and designed trainings on numerous facets of ABA.
