This presentation is part of the ABA Subspecialty Series: Diversity in Practice. This nine-part series was developed to provide general awareness and education on the many different applications of Applied Behavior Analysis and the industry-specific niches consequently derived from these applications. For each area, one of its foremost experts will cover topics such as origins of the subspecialty area, seminal publications in the area, specific types of problems behavior analysts address within the area, how the treatment approach varies from alternative methods. This series is intended as a helpful resource for all individuals interested in the science of Applied Behavior Analysis, from undergraduates just embarking on their studies to professionals well established in the field.
