LEVEL: Advanced

This training is eligible for 2 BACB Type II CEUs.

When the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder is given, two core characteristics may immediately come to mind–communication and behavior. Delayed communication and challenging behaviors are fundamental concerns in individuals with autism. The cycle of poor language and challenging behavior is continuous and requires the collaboration of two very specific professionals to address these needs as well as the global needs of the individual and their family.

Over time, research has consistently shown that autism is a global and pervasive developmental disorder. Collaboration among professionals, effectiveness of communication and behavioral interventions are essential to achieve the best outcomes for those with ASD (Lloyd et al, 2012). As speaker Sharon Watts, MS, CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist stated, “When the fields of Speech-Language Pathology and Behaviorism collaborate, treatment can be maximized exponentially for individuals on the Autism spectrum and beyond.”

Partnerships between speech pathologists and behavior analysts increase the benefits for consumers of our services in treating speech, language, and swallowing disorders. In addition, these partnerships enhance communication between our related professions through conference presentations, collaborative research, workshops, publication of treatment protocols and materials, and many other venues.

So much of challenging behavior can be traced to poor communication skills and many communication deficits can likewise be drawn from challenging behavior. Because of this the line between the two fields often becomes blurred. However, both BCBAs and SLPs must adhere to their respective discipline’s code of ethics and only intervene within their own scope of practice. By knowing each discipline’s rich history, scope of practice, and philosophies, professional collaboration can be successfully accomplished.

This recorded webcast totals 120 minutes with a review of theory, philosophy, methodology, and practice for BCBAs, BCABAs, SLPs, administrators, and others working with these professionals and individuals with autism spectrum disorders.
