ABA for SLPs: Interprofessional Collaboration for Autism Support Teams
To help ensure the best outcomes for learners with autism spectrum disorder, speech-language pathologists (SLPs) and behavior analysts (Bas) need to work together to support positive behavior and effective communication. This book provides SLPs with a clearer understanding of applied behavior analysis (ABA)—and bridges the gap between the two fields with a comprehensive plan for collaboration. An important new addition to courses in speech-language pathology, this textbook clears up the myths and misconceptions surrounding ABA and builds a clear path to interprofessional practice between SLPs and Bas. Through chapters co-authored by practitioners from both disciplines, speech-language pathologists will learn how to move past ABA stereotypes and controversies, incorporate the best ABA-based practices into their work- and break down the barriers to productive collaboration with Bas.
