Applied Behavior Analysis: Overview and Application, including Assessment and Treatment of Pediatric Feeding Disorders

Collaboration across disciplines can be challenging when there is not a clear understanding of the reasoning behind methods. The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. Participants will learn about the history of ABA, how ABA is utilized, and common interventions used in ABA. Participants will access learning through lecture, data analysis, and clinical case examples. An additional focus of the presentation will be to present examples of care coordination that occurs when children receive ABA treatment services. Providing quality care to children with complex medical and behavioral needs can feel incredibly difficult when therapists are isolated from other treatment providers. One significant barrier to providing coordinated care is a lack of knowledge about other disciplines scope of practice. The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of a biobehavioral approach to the assessment and treatment of pediatric feeding difficulties. Topics covered during the presentation include a BCBA’s role in the assessment and treatment of pediatric feeding difficulties, the importance of interdisciplinary assessment and treatment when working with children with complex medical and behavioral needs, common behavior interventions used to treat feeding difficulties, and a review of clinical case studies.
